Kayak Lessons

pc logoThe Paddle Canada Level 1 Skills course is ideal for those that have already taken the PC Basic Kayak Skills (formerly Introduction to Kayaking) course and want to advance their skills, or that have some time in a kayak and want to learn to do things properly and take their paddling to a new level. This is a great course with enough time to really work on a few of our skills and introduce participants to a wider world of kayaking. It's also a lot of fun! This course runs a minimum of 16 hours and so will be spread over two days or more depending on the course you sign up for.
