LAST Safety­ class of 2018. What to do WHEN your boat turns over (Sept 29)
The cost of the class is $125.00 if you do not have a boat. $99.00 if you are bringing a boat. Just change the amount when you are prompted to pay if you are bringing your own boat. ******************************************************************************** If you paddle a kayak on any type of water, YOU NEED THIS CLASS! Does not matter how long you have been paddling, if you still drag boats filled with water to the bank to empty them, YOU NEED THIS CLASS!! If you are not comfortable falling out of your boat, YOU NEED THIS CLASS! YOU WILL BE WET, VERY WET, MOST OF THE DAY! I have now introduced over 2500 people to paddling. I know that some of you still do not feel very comfortable paddling on your own, so this course is for you. If you are still not quite sure what to do if you go swimming, this course is for you. We will review the basics of paddling but then we will learn several different ways to deal with a swamped kayak, both in still deep water and in moving water. The more you know about self rescue, the safer things will be for you and your paddle partners. This class is suitable for beginners. Heck, beginners need it the most! If you do not have your own boat yet, a boat, paddle and PFD will be provided. All you need to bring is food and water. We will put in at Johnson Ferry Park and take out at Paces Mill. You do not need to set your own shuttle, we will do this as a group. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call me. John Miller [masked]

What we're about

Our group is for people who are interested in learning how to kayak but just do not know where to start. And for people who have a little experience but want to improve and get on the water more.

No boat? No problem, we have them. All necessary equipment is part of our package, We offer classes taught by American Canoe Association (ACA) certified instructors with an emphasis on having fun while staying safe. Our sessions are not in a class room but are taught under the trees and on the river in your own personal floating work station. (a kayak of course)

There is no age limitation on this sport, people are kayaking across the country and around the world from age 4 to 80! We will also be offering guided trips on various rivers throughout the year for folks who do not have boats or who just do not feel ready to paddle on their own.

Thank you,

John Miller
