Thinking about improving your skills or gaining new ones? At first, getting into a kayak and paddling around seems pretty easy and uncomplicated. But, there comes a time when you may seek more challenges, or an adventure beckons.

If you want to feel more confident crossing open water, or learn capsize recovery, for instance, then Bowen Island Sea Kayaking has a class for you. If you want to try yoga on a paddle board, we have an experienced instructor waiting to hear from you!

Lessons can help in unexpected ways, from improving your physical comfort level with better stroke technique, to the psychological comfort of knowing how to rescue yourself or another paddler.

Our four lead instructors have Sea Kayaking and Wilderness First Aid certifications and, more than 60 years of paddling experience combined.

All classes require a minimum of 3 participants. Please call the office to schedule or send us a message.
