Who this course is for
Beginners and experienced kayakers alike

Why this course is so important 
Being on the water, exposed to Mother Nature, means when things do go wrong, and they can go very wrong, very quickly.
Almost all the time, a lack of trip planning or adequate ocean knowledge is the reason people get into trouble.
