Whether or not you live in Middle Tennessee, Alabama or Kentucky, interest in recreational kayaking is booming! Sign up for a hands-on kayak lesson by an ACA (American Canoe Association) Certified Kayak Instructor who's written the book, Quiet Water Kayaking: A Beginner's Guide" based on the lessons. Kayak lessons includes all gear at no extra charge.

A day paddle on one of Middle Tennessee's beautiful calm rivers is like a mini-vacation, great outdoor exercise and, after purchase of boat and gear, averages out to years of inexpensive fun. It's a great way to meet new friends, too! To see comments by other students, click here.

Private three hour kayak lessons restricted to groups of five. No large group teaching here! You'll learn a lot more with small group, one-on-one instruction. Learn how to kayak or improve your skills with a Certified  Kayak Instructor with years of experience who is patient, safety-minded, enjoys passing the love of the sport to others and makes learning fun! The three hour private instruction class includes how to transport your boat, what to buy (and not buy), and practice your first Oops! with the safety of an instructor on hand. 

Happy Paddlin'

Leslie Dunn

p.s. I've been asked by students to include this: If you haven't already done so, do not purchase any gear or boat until after the kayak lesson. There's a lot from which to choose to purchase! After the lesson you will be able to make informed decisions and maybe save yourself a trip back to the store.
