Kayaking Instruction

Kayak paddling skills in Manzanita Harbor

Kayak paddling skills course while touring gorgeous Manzanita Bay

Kayaking Instruction on Beautiful Bainbridge Island

New to kayaking, or looking to improve your existing skills?

Learn how to safely and confidently paddle with instruction from Exotic Aquatics! We offer several classes, from the relaxing Paddling Strokes course, to the challenging and exciting Eskimo Roll class (so much fun!).

If you’ve been out in a kayak a few times and feel confident in your paddling abilities, we recommend going through the Rescue & Re-Entry class. Having the  ability to get both yourself and your friends back into a kayak after going for a swim will greatly improve your confidence level and the fun you’ll have.

Due to the nature of the activity, participants should be comfortable on as well as in the water.
