Paddle Sports

What are Paddle Sports?

Sports that involve paddling! At Cullen Sea School, we have double and single sit-on kayaks, sea kayaks and stand-up paddle boards for you to learn on.

We at the Cullen Sea School aim to introduce adults and children to the joys of propelling their own craft safely and effectively in the sheltered waters of Cullen Harbour and Bay. We will use sit-on-tops, stand up paddleboards and sea kayaks.

A variety of instructor-led sessions are available for the remainder of August depending on the weather and tides.

Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult on the water (sharing one craft). For children aged 12 or over a parent or carer must remain in sight but is also welcome to join them on the water.

Sessions will mainly be held in the Cullen harbour area depending on weather and tide and tailored to suit the age ability of participants. Various games will also be included in each session.

Family groups with a wide age range of children are advised to book a splash and play experience.

Bookings can be made via telephone (01542 840 830), emailing or in person at the sea school.

We are open daily.
