Private lessons are a great way to begin your paddling journey or to add to your existing skill set. Have a tight schedule? Not a problem. Want a bit more personal attention? No sweat. Need time for you and your paddling partner to work on some specific skills? We can do brush-up lessons, help you refine a skill, or start at the beginning. We'll make it work for you; it's your time.
Do you know how...
We can help you develop your skills so you're prepared for tripping in the Boundary Waters, exploring the Apostle Island or paddling a local river. Do you need assistance with any of these skills?
•Braces and recovery strokes
•Edging for effective turns
•Combining strokes for efficiency
•Rescues and towing
•And much more!
Kayakers - we can also help you with:
•Open water kayaking on Lake Michigan
Set up your own time for personal paddling instruction by contacting us. It's best to give us at least a week of lead time so we are able to schedule an instructor and get all of the confirmation info to you. We typically recommend a minimum of 2-hours for a private lesson. (1 hour feels much to rushed for most people.)
