Paddling at Jericho beach

Beginner Weekend

This is a Paddle Canada certified course

Spend a beginner weekend at Jericho beach exploring the world of ocean kayaking. This comprehensive two day program supplies the foundation skills for paddlers wanting to head out for short paddles in a group or by themselves.

On the water we focus on skills such as maneuvering and balancing. Once comfortable in the kayak, you will learn how to safely exit your kayak in the event of a capsize, how to get back in with the help of a partner and how to get back in on your own.
