$329 Intermediate Kayaking Jericho Beach
Take your paddling skills to the next level with our 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. You can choose to take it over two full weekend days or over two weekday evenings and one full day.
The lessons 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.
Once we’re comfortable with all these skills, 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.
Upon successful completion of all skills, you’ll receive your Paddle Canada Level 1 Kayaking Certification.
