LESSONS

You may feel comfortable splashing around in a kayak but real proficiency comes with good instruction. Take one of our classes to increase confidence, skill level, and most importantly, safety.

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

Our lead instructors have more than 50 years of combined paddling experience and hold Sea Kayaking and Wilderness First Aid certifications.

All classes require a minimum of 2 participants.
