If you've ever tried a kayak, you know it is not always easy to get it to do what you want. This 3 hour class will cover the 6 basic strokes, equipment, safety, and how to do a rescue in the event of a capsize. By the end of the class you will be able to maneuver your kayak with ease, and you will know when to paddle and when to stay on shore, as well as how to rescue and be rescued.

Our teachers are all ACA (American Canoe Association) certified instructors.

$65 Includes all equipment: boat, paddle, and PFD (life jacket). Bring sunscreen, hat, drinking water, water friendly footwear (closed toed shoes), and appropriate non-cotton clothing.
