The Kayak Search Team is a dedicated team of highly competent kayakers. All team members are qualified and operational Lowland Search Technicians, who have developed these skills for the water environment. All are skilled paddlers, capable of using a range of craft. Most of the team are active white water paddlers, and all are coaches with British Canoeing Safety and Rescue qualifications.
Kayaks are an ideal rapid deployment water search craft, which can be used in any waterway, but are especially useful in shallow, narrow, environmentally sensitive or difficult to access waters. Since most of Warwickshire’s waterways are small and shallow kayaks are the ideal search vehicles for these waterways.
