Kayak Lessons

An 8 hour course to introduce the novice paddler to kayaking following the Paddle Canada nationally-certified course. No prerequisites. Those that successfully complete the 8 hour course will receive a certificate of completion.

In the Basic Kayak Skills course we will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to begin kayaking and set the foundation for many years of efficient, healthy, and safe paddling.  We conduct a portion of some of our courses in the pool at Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre so that you can learn in a comfortable environment.  The remaining portions of the course are conducted at a nearby lake where you get to practice what was learned in the pool and pick up a few new paddling skills as well.
