This 3-day skill development adventure is appropriate for paddlers looking to be exposed to rough water paddling conditions and to improve and enhance their rough water boat handling skills while working in the coastal and tidal current environment. We will use multiple classrooms with two of the days focusing on tidal currents and the final day will focus on exploring the coastal ocean environment including sea caves and waves an wind that can be found along the Bay of Fundy coast!

We will cover foundational moving water skills using eddylines, covering safety & rescue and improved boat control in rough water. This program can also provide opportunities for paddlers with experience in rough water looking to broaden upon their skill-set in rough water up to boat handling on a standing wave. This program is suitable for Paddle Canada Level-1 Skills paddlers looking to gain experience in rough water and Paddle Canada Level-2 Skills and above looking to refine their boat handling in conditions. Our small group sessions will allow for customized learning opportunities.
