Most new paddlers in Ontario choose our Paddle Canada level 1 kayaking course to launch their paddling careers. You will learn theory on-land and paddling skills on the water that will transform your ability in a kayak dramatically in two days. Participants are equipped with good judgment and confidence to safely enjoy day-trips in sheltered waters.
This course will teach you how to move your kayak in all directions, safely exit the kayak after a capsize, how to re-enter the kayak with a partner or solo and to do it all safely and efficiently. The course also covers day-tripping skills such as Navigation, Weather and equipment choices.
Certification courses are great because when you become certified you know you have a certain level of proficiency in a skill set. Truly, however, the important and valuable part of our courses is the amount of helpful information you are going to acquire from our knowledgable instructors. We used to promise that we can save our students the cost of the course by helping then not waste money on the wrong gear! 😉 We send students away with a newfound passion for the sport, knowledge on what equipment to buy and some mad skills to get out and more fully enjoy our beautiful country.
