QUICK START YOUR KAYAK - Quick Start is an American Canoe Association course designed to help you learn the paddle strokes necessary to maneuver safely and comfortably in still water - forward, backward, and sideways! We call it Kayak Basics, because in this class you will learn the basics about paddle strokes as well as boats and paddles, safety, and how to dress for the water.

ESSENTIALS OF KAYAK TOURING. Also known as "Level 2", Essentials of Kayak Touring is a full day (7.5 - 8-hour) course designed for the paddler with little or no prior paddling experience (and for those of you who've been out there paddling without any instruction ). Essentials is a course designed for the paddler who wants to go beyond Kayak Basics, including learning self and assisted rescues, and paddling safely in a group. Topics also include understanding the very basics of tides and currents, use of a compass (safety bearing), rules for paddling in channels with and without boat traffic, use of VHF radio and weather radio and other emergency equipment.
