Wednesday Evening Introduction to Sea Kayaking.
$65.00 per person/2 hour course.
Interested in getting more than just a tour? Learn how to paddle a kayak and get an in depth introduction to the freedom that Sea Kayaking offers. Meet up with our group at approx 6:00 pm and go over the basics of sea kayaking (start time will vary throughout the year). We will cover all aspects of safely preparing for your paddle and will then get out on Elliott Bay for some on-water instruction. Space is limited to 6 persons per evening, and if you have a group of 2 or more, we can provide this instruction on another evening by reservation. This course is recommended for rental of our single sea kayaks and these skills are required for the follow-up Rescue and Recovery Course.
We will cover the following topics:
- Dressing to Paddle Safely
- Potential Hazards
- Beach Launch and Landing
- Basic Strokes
While the Intro to Sea Kayaking Course is designed as a stand alone course, it is recommended that paddlers follow up with the Rescue and Recovery course or the Sea Kayak Touring Essentials course.
