Combining Sea Kayaking 1 & 2 is a great way to spend a day learning to kayak. We cover the basics of how to maneuver a sea kayak and what to do in case of capsize. Because of the all day nature of this class, we strongly encourage participants to be in good physical condition.
Being in absolute control of your kayak is important! This class focuses on maneuvering strokes and techniques. It is recommended that you have previous rescue training before taking this class.
Being out in the water when the fog rolls in, and having no idea where you are can be dangerous. Knowing how to handle that situation will make you a far safer kayaker. You will learn about tides, currents and wind, along with how to read a nautical map.
Knowing the technique to right yourself in a kayak without getting out of the boat is an invaluable tool! Rolling safely is more about technique and not strength, so learning it the right way will save you months if not years of frustration.
