About our Centre

Located minutes from Parry Sound and Georgian Bay, Ontario Sea Kayak Centre is a peaceful retreat for weekend kayaking lessons and coaching. The 16-acre property on the Seguin River has canvas-wall "Glamping" tents among the trees and a waterfront perfect for kayak skill development. We also have cedar outdoor showers, covered and screened kitchen area and composting outhouses. This is the hub where a variety of exciting weekend coaching clinics take place. We have lazy hammocks down by the water to relax by the dock at the end of the day. Its our heaven on earth and we think it may be one of your favourite spots too.

Participant Feedback

 The course was great. The instructors were excellent and I learned a great deal.  I will definitely be back some day for level 2 and I will recommend Learn To Kayak to others.
