Elkhorn Slough Classes

Coastal Sea Kayaking 1 & 2 (Elkhorn Slough)


Combining Sea Kayaking 1 & 2 is a great way to spend a fun-filled 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.

During the first part of this class we will discuss types of sea kayaks, safety considerations and equipment, and kayaking gear.  Then we will get in kayaks and learn the basics of how to paddle a sea kayak, with an emphasis on good technique and body mechanics. After lunch, we will be back in the kayaks learning how to do a T-Rescue and a Paddle Float Rescue, both important for sea kayaking in the ocean.  This class satifies the rescue class requirement for renting closed-deck sea kayaks at our Santa Cruz location and many other outfitters.

Duration: 7 - 8 Hours
