Private Kayak Classes

Tailored to fit your learning style and pace -- and your personal schedule -- Private Instruction allows you to get exactly what you want out of a class. You choose the location (there may be an additional charge depending on location). You can also request your favorite instructor time and time again! No previous kayaking experience is required for a private class; however, a good physical condition is required to assure an enjoyable class. The minimum age for the class is 14 years; children under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
