Be The Duck! Wear The Boat!

Be a Paddle Dancer!

Be A Safety Planner!

An introduction to the fun and safe sport of kayaking, instruction on the basic paddling and boat control skills, safety, self and others rescue as well as an opportunity to see and compare various type of kayaks.

Participants Provide:

  • Gear: kayak, paddle and kayak life jacket (note: if renting a kayak/life jacket please specify below)
  • Water Wear: NO Killer Cotton – use clothing that is non-cotton such as nylon/polyester-synthetic blend, consider dressing in layers if cool; bring a change of clothes as well.
  • Other items: hat, sunglasses, water bottle, extra water, water shoes/sandals (no flip flops), jacket(optional), sun-block, lunch, and snacks.
  • A Great Attitude!

*We suggest water wicking poly active wear that sheds moisture but retains body heat; typically in cooler water we wear a base layer of poly underwear; a long sleeve poly active T, active pants, and a windbreaker/rain jacket; water-shoes or water sandals with wool socks (your feet will be in the water). We also suggest a towel and a change of clothes. Warmer weather still needs poly wear shorts and short sleeve t shirts. Sources for active-wear/paddling clothes include REI, Walmart, Dick’s Sports, Ross, Academy Sports (and Goodwill). No need to spend big bucks. Walmart has water shoes for $5 and lots of poly clothing.
