This course will improve your paddling and rescue skills so that you will be able to confidently paddle in larger waves and on larger bodies of water.

Coastal kayaking involves sea kayaks on larger bodies of waters. You will be required to have a boat 14 feet or longer and with at least two bulkheads and water proof hatches.

You are also required to have a spray skirt and all legally required safety gear. The boat must be of an appropriate size for the paddler. If you do not own such a boat arrangements can be made.

This course is intended for people who have taken an introductory course, but if you are reasonably fit and have some outdoor experience then you will likely benefit from the experience. It is important that you be comfortable in the water while wearing a PFD.
