Navigation Class - 2 Evenings (Session A) or 1 Day (Session B)

Coastal & Backcountry Navigation with Weather & Tides!

You've always gone out with a group because you weren't sure how to find your way around all those little green lumps and bright white beaches, or you've found yourself wishing you knew for sure that the folks leading the trip really knew which way they were going....


Be limited no more!

Learn the essentials of chart reading, taking bearings, locating yourself without a GPS, setting and keeping courses, estimating tides and currents, estimating trip travel times, and reading weather both from the weather reports and your surroundings.


LOCATION - The classroom portion will be held at Industrial Paddlesports, and food and drink will be provided - please comment with any food restrictions in your RSVP.

The on-water location will be in Biscayne Bay, launch point TBD during class.

    OMG! I really had wanted to take this class but it's too late to switch around my schedule for the end of the week and weekend (will be on the west coast). Hopefully this will run again! Wish this was posted earlier. Class sounds awesome!
