OC1 Taster Days and Boat Rental from Green Wave Guiding

OC1 Taster Days

Course description – These days are ideal for people looking to try out oc1 boating before committing to buying or perhaps just looking for a bit of fun and a different way to approach the river. Generally, we ask people to have some experience paddling kayaks or canoe on grade 2 and above rivers, to have a basic understanding of river features and ways to approach them.
if you are not sure feel free to get in touch for a chat.

Due to the nature and design of the boats used we are limited in terms of the size of people can fit inside the boat.
Generally if you are smaller than 6’2 and under the 100kg mark we can find something to suit you.

Boat Rental

Planning a trip to Scotland and can’t transport your own boat?

We are one of only a few places in UK and probably the only place in Scotland you can find a full kitted out selection of OC1 boats. We have 2 x agent 88s, 3 x Covert 9.3s and a tandem ready covert 10.5.

All our boats are kitted out with Super durable Tribal Air Bags and fitted with closed sell foam saddles. Come and pick them up from our base or we can possibly arrange a drop off and pick up for an additional cost.
