Kids Kayaking

June 27, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Our kids class is a great way to introduce your child to the sport of kayaking. Designed with fun and water safety as primary goals, we teach students through a variety of games and exploration. Our experienced, certified instructors teach basic strokes, directional control, how to get in and out of the kayak safely, and what to do when you capsize. Classes are taught in traditional youth sized sea kayaks.
