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. 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!
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 and enjoys passing the love of the sport to others. 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. Kayak lessons includes all gear. (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. You'll save yourself a trip back to the store.)
I am the former organizer of Paddle Adventures Plus and dedicated the group to the memory of my daughter. In just 1 1/2 years we grew to over 900 members - a group for recreational paddlers was a hit! I am now a Nashville Kayak Instructor for beloved newbies, intermediate and advanced paddlers. Learn how to kayak one-on-one or with a small group, and you'll look and feel like a pro on river trips. If interested in scheduling a date not on the calendar, please feel free to email me. I'd love to hear from you.
