Paddle Canada Level Two Sea Kayaking Skills Series is a gateway to an exciting progression of sea kayak touring and overnight trips in the many amazing yet challenging Canadian kayaking destinations.

Participation in this one weekend plus a multi-day overnight stay program will allow you to develop and assess your skill and comprehension necessary for proficient overnight kayak touring in moderate sea conditions. Includes instruction and assessment of touring skills, risk assessment, bracing, maneuvering strokes, combined strokes, sustained paddling, introduction to rolling and an overnight camping trip.

Weekend 1 includes two full days (9am – 4pm) at Jericho Beach working on skills, strokes, and knowledge to prepare for Weekend 2 overnight camping trip which will take place in the Gulf Islands. Navigation, advanced strokes, quick and efficient re-entries including rolling will all be reviewed and assessed. Strategies for paddling over longer distances and in more challenging conditions as well as camp craft skills, as they apply to kayak camping, are also included in the Level 2 series.

Upon successful completion of all skills, you will receive your Paddle Canada Level 2 Kayaking Certification.
