Paddle Canada Level-1 Skills

Learn to Sea Kayak –

You will love where it takes you!

This program is ideal for those looking to get out on sheltered waters and explore for the day. 

On this 2-day Paddle Canada program paddlers will work towards efficiently and effectively controlling and turning their boats, as well as a variety of stroke techniques. Participants will be introduced to charts, navigation, weather and decision making appropriate for planning day trips.  We will broaden the paddler’s safety tool box to learn about safety equipment, effective bracing technique, simple towing techniques and getting back in your boat with the help of another paddler as well as by yourself.  If you want to become a more confident and capable paddler, this is the program for you. Paddle Canada Sea Kayak Level-1 Skills Certificate available for Successful Participants.

We are happy to offer a couple of course dates as well as a couple of course locations for folks to choose from!

Dates for Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick coming soon….
