Kayaking skills

Minimum number of participants



Anyone interested in overnight kayaking or exploring other islands – or paddling more than a couple hours along the shore – would benefit from this class.

This full day course combines both the Strokes class and the Capsize Recovery class into one. In two three-hour segments you will gain the confidence required to travel safely in open water, respond to capsizes if necessary, and to deal with changes in wind, waves and weather.
