Kayak Lesson Jericho Beach Vancouver Canada

$269 Intermediate Kayaking Jericho Beach

This is a Paddle Canada certified course

Take your paddling skills to the next level with a weekend intermediate course. This is the next step to preparing and taking a self-guided day trip. Your kayak, gear, and wetsuit are included in the cost of your lesson.

The Saturday lesson will take place at Jericho Beach. We’ll refine your strokes by incorporating edging, deepen your understanding of re-entry techniques, and introduce some new strokes to help you paddle more efficiently. We’ll also introduce navigation for day-tripping, including chart reading, route finding, tides, and weather.

For the Sunday lesson, we’ll take a day trip from our Jericho Beach location. You’ll use your newly learned navigation skills and practice leadership and decision-making along the way.

Paddle Canada Level 1 Kayaking certification is also available for an additional $15 fee.
