Kayak Classes

There are many ways to start your kayaking journey, whether you are just starting out or you are looking to get some formal instruction to make sure you are doing things right!

Recreational Kayak vs Sea Kayak
  • Our recreational kayak classes feature wide, stable boats with large cockpits making them easy to get in and out. They are perfect for slow-moving rivers and small lakes and are easy to use for activities such as fishing and bird watching.

  • Sea kayaking classes make use of longer, narrower boats, also called touring kayaks. Sea kayaks are fast, maneuverable and with the use of a spray skirt, are designed to handle larger bodies of water like the Great Lakes or oceans. They can carry large amounts of gear and are perfect for overnights and higher mileage paddling.

Private Summer Lessons
Private lessons are a great way to begin your paddling journey or to add to your existing skill set. We can do brush-up lessons, help you refine a skill, or start at the beginning. We'll make it work for you; it's your time.

For more information on setting up your private instruction, go to the Private Lessons page.
