Paddle Canada Level 3


Kayaking Lessons

Paddle Canada Level 3 Skills Kayak Course. Rough water tripping

By the time students come back to us for this Paddle Canada Level 3 course they are usually already venturing competently on multi-day trips. Additional coaching in a more dynamic environment takes paddlers to the next level.

At OSKC we believe the best way to learn is by living the experience, taking the trip. This is a five-day kayaking adventure in challenging conditions.

Group members take turns leading and making decisions based upon weather and sea state along the way. Participants will work out solutions to possible scenarios as created by your kayak instructors in dynamic conditions.

Participant Feedback

 I was very worried about tipping out of the boat and the rescue part but with their expert guidance and encouragement I’m very glad that I did it.
