Intro: Sea Kayaking

If you’ve never kayaked before, or you aren’t sure if it’s the right fit, then this fun “taster” kayak class is the course for you. We will introduce you to kayaking fundamentals and help you develop a better idea of where you want to take yourself in the sport. During the course, we will cover basic paddling skills and some paddle strokes to get you started. We will look at options for kayaking equipment, and most importantly, we will have a fun day on the water!

This kayak class is fun for the whole family. It occurs in the gorgeous Bowman Bay State Park and stays in calm water.

It is important to note that if you are more than casually interested in learning how to kayak, then we highly recommend signing up for a more in-depth Foundations Level 1 2-Day course.

We initially questioned whether a “foundations” class would be right for us, thinking we may need to start at a more advanced level. We were so wrong!!! (This course) is jam-packed with necessary information!!
