Basic Kayak Class

Age: 12 years & up

This basic three-hour kayaking class will teach you what you need to know to take a kayak and get the maximum of SAFE enjoyment from the boat. We start with the basic elements (how to properly get into a kayak, the forward paddle stroke, steering techniques) and build out from there to include bracing techniques to help provide more stability on the water, and solo and partnered rescue techniques, so you know how to get back in the boat from the water. The class includes all equipment. This is a contractual program.

Fee: $99 R / $119 NR
Location: Jones Island Beach
Min / Max: 5 / 12
Code: 430104A
