Course Description

Discover how easy it is to balance on top of the water. Our paddle boarding starter course is an excellent opportunity to learn the basic strokes and skills you'll need for maneuvering a paddle board, allowing you to explore scenic lakes, coves and inlets.

Our course begins with a brief introduction and safety talk from our friendly paddling instructors, who will share their accumulated wisdom from years of paddle boarding. They'll outfit you with a personal flotation device (PFD), paddle board and paddling equipment, giving you insight on the best ways to set up your board. You'll receive instruction on a variety of paddling strokes and have the opportunity to practice each stroke by the shore.

After you feel comfortable on the water, you'll set out in a guided, interpretive tour with your group. You'll experience the freedom of skimming across the water, learning about the ecosystem and history of the area.

All necessary paddleboarding equipment is provided.

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
