Welcome to the home of Kate Duffus Paddling.

I am a BCU level 5 sea kayak coach and I provide a range of bespoke coaching days, guided trips and expeditions, mainly in Scotland and Cumbria but other places by arrangement.

I am also able to provide training and assessment for the BCU 3 star sea kayak and 3 star white water and 4 star sea kayak leader awards.

Check out the PADDLING section for available dates.

When I’m not paddling I can often be found exploring the underground world of Yorkshire Dales caves. I hold the Cave Instructor Certificate, the highest level of caving qualification.

Check out the CAVING section to see what I can offer.
