Class Overview

Do you want to learn to paddle but are not sure where to start or have you been paddling but want to learn how to do it more efficiently?

In this course, students will learn all things fundamental to kayaking. This includes basic paddling strokes, terminology, etiquette, theory, safety information, and much more!

We will begin our first section of the class on dry land, bring what you would bring to a beach and make sure to have an extra bottle of water for these hot Florida days. There is always the possibility to get wet when you put a boat on water so bring a waterproof dry bag to keep any valuables dry, or plan to leave those objects in your vehicle.

If you have your own kayaking gear, bring it, and bring it all otherwise you can rent a kayak and gear from us.

This is a rain or shine class! The only time a class will be rescheduled is in the event of lightning.

This class will be for those that want to learn how to wet exit, recover, re-enter, or be rescued. It will be a physically demanding class where everyone will be participating in the water. This means LOTS of swimming, pumping, and climbing back into half submerged kayaks. If being up-side down in your kayak scares you, please don't sign up for this class. Get some one-on-one instruction with an ACA or BCU instructor.

If you have your own kayaking gear (kayak, PFD, spray skirt, and sponge) bring it otherwise you can rent a kayak and gear from us. We will provide bilge pumps and paddle floats if needed.
