Winter Warriors 2021 & 2022
More Courses, More Choice, Total Flexibility!
Blue Dog Kayaking offers novice paddlers the most extensive and flexible skills training program available.
Based from our paddling center at Mill Bay Marina we invite you to become a "Winter Warrior" and take part in a Paddle Canada L1 skills course.
This course is packed with skill based hands on learning, paddle techniques, rescue skills and covers some of those must know theory subjects. Our main goal is to share our passion for sea kayaking, and help prepare paddlers for their future adventures. Activities focus on safety and gaining the paddling and seamanship skills necessary for a day trip within a sheltered bay along a shoreline with easy landing opportunities.
The "core" paddling strokes, wet exits and proven rescue techniques make up day one of this excellent course. On day two participants will have the opportunity to pack a kayak with gear necessary for a comfortable a day trip and take part in group trip planning, weather interpretation, navigation and risk assessment. A full resource pack, manual and joining instructions are available on registration.
Loaded with learning and fun, this course is MUST for any new paddler or Kayakers wishing to re-visit skills.
Spring & Summers dates are now available to book online.
