Kayak Classes

If you're a beginner, there are many ways to start your kayaking journey. Our wide range of beginner classes can get anyone off to a great start. Check them out to find the one that best suits your needs.

Recreational Kayak vs Sea Kayak
· Our recreational kayak classes feature wide, stable boats with large cockpits making them easy to get in and out. They are perfect for slow-moving rivers and small lakes and are easy to use for activities such as fishing and bird watching.

· Sea kayaking classes make use of longer, narrower boats, also called touring kayaks. Sea kayaks are fast, maneuverable and with the use of a spray skirt, are designed to handle larger bodies of water like the Great Lakes or oceans. They can carry large amounts of gear and are perfect for overnights and higher mileage paddling.

Once you've learned the basics it's time to get out in a boat and practice, finding safe ways to challenge yourself and expand your skill set. With additional classes, we can help you hone and refine your skills, opening you up to a whole new world of adventure.
