I learned all I needed to know at this point to begin having fun with kayaking. At some point I may return for more advanced training but right now I just want to get out there and kayak.

would like more time on the water to apply all the techniques learnt. Also, please start and end on time - it's only fair.

I have never even sat in a kayak before this class and I walked out with a ton of confidence! Our instructor, Sam, was amazing! He was so knowledgeable and taught us so much.
