Learn to kayak with Blue Dog Kayaking
Our ‘Basic’ Kayaking course designed for novice kayakers. Learn to kayak in the calm warm waters of Mill Bay or Port Sidney. Skills covered include forward and turning strokes, a controlled wet exit and assisted rescues. You will also learn about injury prevention, safety equipment and kayak outfitting. You’ll be closer to wildlife than you ever thought possible and will see seals, otters and an array of water birds and sea stars. We think you’ll get hooked!
Participants can extend the course by 1 day to complete Paddle Canada Level 1 skills at any time during the season (subject to availability)
Basic skills courses run at both our Mill Bay and Sidney locations
1 day basic skills course including kayak, equipment and dry suit - $180 + GST
