Kayak Instruction

We run an extensive instructional program that covers all facets of sea kayaking. No one becomes a competent paddler after just one course; it takes time and training to learn the skills and to begin understanding the many moods of the sea.

Each of our courses focuses on different aspects of the sport, allowing you to take your safety, strokes, and rescue skills into different water environments. We also provide private instruction so that you may practice and brush up on newly acquired skills. You can find our scheduled class times on our 2017 season calendar.


To sign up for a course, contact us via the ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM, or email us at We will contact you about course details as soon as possible.

Liability Waiver Form – The liability waiver form must be read and signed by all adult participants (18+). Minors (under 18) need to have a liability waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Please note that all participants interested in instruction must meet the ACA Essential Eligibility Criteria. If you have any questions regarding the Essential Eligibility Criteria, please contact the shop at or call the shop line at 508-636-0300.
