Service Description

Building on the information covered in Basic Skills, Level-1 is a two-day course that moves participants beyond flatwater kayaking and into the sport of sea kayaking. The course is conducted in slightly rougher water than Basic Kayak, aiming to develop the paddler’s comfort in class-1 waters. There is a strong focus on re-entry techniques as well as the skills required to safely plan and execute a day trip with friends (for example, navigation & route planning, weather interpretation, proper clothing/gear.) Prerequisites: → Certification: Paddle Canada Basic Kayak skills certification or equivalent skill and knowledge at the discretion of the course director. → Paddling experience: Five kayaking excursions (2 or 3 hours) in class-0.
