Our 2021 Paddle Canada "Basic Skills' Program will now run in conjunction with the Paddle Canada L1 skills offering - More Courses, More Choice, Total Flexibility!
If you are totally new to kayaking and would prefer taking a one day course you can complete day one of the Paddle Canada L1 skills and be awarded "Basic Skills" certification.
The day is packed with learning and fun, your instructors will cover the correct stroke techniques and how to exit a kayak and rescue your partner. You will also learn about injury prevention, safety equipment and kayak outfitting. You’ll be closer to wildlife than you ever thought possible while learning in a relaxed friendly environment, we think you’ll get hooked!
To register please visit the Paddle Canada L1 Skills page (link below) chose your preferred date/course and apply coupon code BASICONLY which will adjust the pricing for a singe day course.
Participants can extend the course by 1 day to complete Level 1 skills at any time during the season.
