Skills & Scenery

New for 2019!

Cloud 9 Adventures is excited to be offer these exciting new paddling opportunities with our Skills & Scenery Series. These are designed to welcome paddlers of all abilities to join us as we explore some of our favourite paddling locations around Prince Edward Island!

These paddles will not only take us to beautiful and scenic paddling locations, but will also dedicate a bit of our time together to work on and develop a specific skill. This will give newer paddlers a chance to focus on a new skill or for more seasoned paddlers a chance to practice and refine your existing skills for improvement.

All of our sessions will be offered by a Paddle Canada certified instructor and will include approximately 30 minutes of our time together will be focused on skill development and instruction with the other 90 minutes dedicated to going for a paddle, enjoying the spectacular Island scenery and trying out and practicing our new skills along the way. This series will be a great way to have some fun, get out in nature, improve your paddling and meet other paddlers!

Everyone is welcome on these sessions; however, there is some mandatory equipment that all paddlers will be required to have (listed below). If you don’t have a kayak or some of the gear listed please let us know as we do have some rental options for you.
