Our British Canoeing Paddle Explore Award is designed to give paddlers the skills and knowledge necessary to become an independent paddler in their own right. It's aimed at paddlers who have completed the British Canoeing Discover Award and/or have the relevant experience.

You will have an opportunity to paddle both tandem and solo open canoes including the new Silverbirch Firefly 14.
