Spend Two Days Learning the Essential Skills of Sea Kayaking
This is the workshop for anyone who wants to become a sea kayaker.

Our Intro to Sea Kayaking Weekend Workshop is designed for anyone who is new to sea kayaking or has very limited experience. We’ll cover everything we typically cover in our two-part Intro to Sea Kayak courses, as well as in our Intro to Sea Kayak Rescues course. The additional time provided by the two-day weekend workshop will allow us to go a bit deeper into the fundamentals than we usually do with the stand-alone courses.

Students will have the opportunity to use the skills and knowledge they’re learning in the workshop during a day paddle to an island destination. If you think you’d enjoy becoming a sea kayaker, this workshop is a great way to get started. You’ll learn the essential skills, get to know Casco Bay from a paddler’s perspective and get connected with a group of fellow kayakers.

We will be on the water from 9am-4pm each day of the workshop.
