K2 Paddlers


The Learn to Paddle program is designed for those adults with no sprint paddling experience- or very minimal and not comfortable yet in a boat.

Though the focus will be largely on kayak style paddling, we will also touch on sprint canoe paddling with an opportunity to go out in the War Canoe with the masters. (Don't worry, we won't make you do the whole practice- just a warm up trip to the 500 and back to give you a taste of this great workout). Most of our Masters do paddle both disciplines though they may have a preference for one over the other.

By the end of the 4 week sessions, you will know how to get in and out of a kayak, what to do when you tip and how to get yourself back to the dock and often people can paddle a more stable kayak.

MAX Participants per session: 15
