Kayaking - Level 1 Skills Certification


If you are planning more remote and independent paddling trips, occasionally find yourself paddling solo, or touring with beginner paddlers, then this program is for you! 


This dynamic kayaking course is more robust than the Basic Skills course as we dive deeper in paddling efficiency, power, maneuverability and overall boat control.  We spend more time practicing partner and self re-entries, offer more detail on trip planning tools such as navigation, winds + waves, weather systems, and group risk management. 


This course boosts your confidence and technique with lots of hands on practice. With many stroke improvement exercises and coaching tips, we recommend this course for all recreational kayakers whether you are a beginner or have paddled for many years and could use a tune up.   


All equipment is included, bring your own lunch for breaks on the National Park Islands.


Registration for this program is done directly through the 1000 Islands Kayaking website. Please select the registration button below to complete your registration.
