This class is aimed towards those with little or no experience kayaking, as well as those who want some formal instruction or technique tips from an instructor.
We will cover the basics of kayaks, paddles, life jackets, and safety equipment, as well as teach you how to get in and out of the kayak, paddle efficiently, and the various strokes employed.
Part of the time will be spent discussing theory on the beach, but most of the time will be spent on the water practicing the strokes, taking in the sights, and getting technique critique.

Want to go stand-up paddle boarding?
Got an itch to get out on the waters of the Puget Sound? Come to beautiful Bainbridge Island and rent one of our high quality Pau Hana stand-up paddle boards for 2 hours, plenty of time to explore one of our beautiful harbors.
Want to become a true kayaking pro? Learn to right yourself quickly and efficiently after tipping over in your boat. No longer will you have to escape the boat and deal with the pain of getting back in from the water.
