Winter Sea Kayaking

Sea Kayaking

Two weeks ago, the TasTAFE Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation students enjoyed a few days of sea kayaking around Hobart and it’s surrounds.

The weather was perfect and despite the cold nights, the cloudless days kept the students warm while performing deep water rescues, practicing our paddling strokes and guiding each other on the water.  Our first day at Kingston Beach saw ice on the high sand dunes but bliss out on the water where the sun was shining.

On our second day we enjoyed some floating fish and chips after paddling from Short Beach to the CBD and had some close encounters with the resident seal while we lunched. Our third day saw beautiful views of Alum Cliffs on our journey from Taroona Beach to Kingston and back.  Guest instructor Cody McCracken and long-time teacher Renee Harrington deserve a special shout out for their wonderful mentoring and location choices!
