Spend a full weekend or two evenings and a full day at Jericho Beach exploring the world of ocean kayaking! This comprehensive program supplies foundational skills for paddlers wanting to head out for short paddles in a group or by themselves.

We’ll start by focusing on some basic skills like maneuvering and balancing. Once you’re comfortable in the kayak, you’ll learn how to safely exit during a capsize and get back in, both on your own and with the help of a partner.

Upon successful completion of all skills, you will receive your Paddle Canada Basic Kayaking Certification. Additionally, this program will earn you your solo re-entry card which enables you to rent a kayak by yourself.
