Totally new to kayaking? - Our ‘Basic’ Kayaking course is for you.
Designed for novice kayakers you will learn to paddle in the calm warm waters of Mill Bay or Port Sidney. We cover 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 while leaning in a relaxed friendly environment, 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)
