Below are suggestions for scheduling your symposium that focus on beginner and novice paddlers, women and youth. If you are an intermediate or advanced paddler you have no limitation to your choice of class or tour.

Beginner Track
As a Beginner, we have two options for starting the weekend: Introduction to Sea Kayaking or Kayak Essentials. Then use our suggested tracks below or take any of our Basic Skills classes or tours. Everyone is required to know how to do a wet exit (tip over with a spray skirt on) and an assisted rescue before taking any basic class or tour.

If you're a Novice we recommend beginning with Kayak Tune-Up or Kayak Essentials, a morning of basic skills that will give you a refresher of what you need to get to the next level. After either class, you'll be ready for our wide selection of Basic Skills classes and many tours. Everyone is required to know how to do a wet exit (tip over with a spray skirt on) and an assisted rescue before taking any basic class or tour.
