Kayaking "How To" Skills, Drills and Tour *LIVE*

 

Led by the East Coast Outfitters, Kayaking "How to" Skills, Drills and Tour is a dynamic learn-to-kayak program designed for those with limited to no experience on the water.

Have you always wanted to try sea kayaking?  This summer build your skills, knowledge, and passion for paddle. Whether you want to learn so that you can paddle around your cottage lake, or hit the rolling waves of the Atlantic, the skills you build in these clinics are your first step to securing a Paddle Canada certification. 

 

After this clinic you will receive Paddle Canada's Basic Sea Kayak Certification (pending individual skills test). 

 

East Coast Outfitters operates from Lower Prospect, approximately 25-minutes outside Halifax.
