Have you ever experienced the tranquility of gliding quietly across the water as herons and egrets take flight or witness hungry fish leap from the depths to catch their dinner? These are just a couple of examples of what you may experience while kayaking on the Delta. If you have ever considered paddling or think of yourself as a beginner our introduction to kayaking is the class for you. Our introductory class will help you get a great start on proper paddling technique and basic safety.
Kayaking is a sport that nearly all people from the very young to the very mature can take part. It is also a low impact sport that has many health benefits including improved cardiovascular fitness, increased muscle strength and paddling can also help relieve stress.
Jumping in a boat and paddling off into the sunset can be a great experience but there is so much more to kayaking. There are many facets to the sport that give an individual a chance to learn, grow and develop their skills. Kayaks are built to suit a specific type of paddling and with the multitude of kayaks on the market, where do you start?
Our Intro class will introduce you to basic paddling skills on calm, flat water. We’ll go over different types of kayaks and their best uses, necessary equipment and basic strokes and maneuvers. Learning proper stroke technique is critical to getting the most out of your time on the water. To refine the skills you’ll be learning we’ll paddle a short distance practicing the various strokes. We’ll also introduce you to tides and how they influence the Delta.
After taking this class you should feel confident to join the majority of tours Delta Kayak Adventures offer. We can also help you grow in learning and provide you with resources to further your kayak education and endeavors.
