"Dave and Amber ran a very well organized and challenging course for our Level 2 Sea Kayak Instructor certification. For higher level courses the paddling and teaching experience of your instructors really matters and in this regard we could not have asked for better instructors. I'd highly recommend other prospective instructor candidates consider Blue Dog Kayaking for a hands-on course using proven teaching methodologies." Dan Wong, Owner or Jackpine Paddle
