This 2.5 day course goes beyond the basics in sea kayaking to provide you the skills to comfortably undertake a day trip in relatively sheltered, calm waters. You’ll develop solid kayak rescue skills and enhance key paddling/bracing strokes. Practical navigation, weather interpretation and safe travel for sheltered waters is introduced with lots of guided practice time. Paddle Canada certification is optional; learning new stuff will happen regardless, and you’ll be happily engaged with a whole new set of paddling and safe travel skills.
Our instructors are enthusiastic and skilled teachers who employ a variety of techniques to enhance your learning experience. Approachable and generous with their time, you’ll be sure to have full days and ample opportunities to improve your paddling.

White Squall is my yardstick for great kayak paddling adventures – and their stores are awesome too. All staff from owners, sales and guides are competent and just plain nice.
