TAKE KAYAKING TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
Are you looking explore inland waterways and slow moving rivers, gliding silently as you sneak up on herons and egrets in coastal marshes? Or perhaps you want to cover miles of open coast, packing enough gear for a multi-day island-hopping adventure? Or does taking on waves and crashing surf sound like your idea of fun? If any--or all of the above--sound appealing to you, our classes will help get you closer to your goals.
All our courses include all the gear you need: kayak, spray skirt, paddle, life jacket, and course-related safety equipment.
