This is a one day course designed for participants who are new to kayaking or for those who are interested in improving their kayak skills. In this course, we will progress through various topics starting on land and then moving to the water.

* Rescue techniques
* Wet exits and re-entry
* Reading water (tides, waves, wind, etc.)
* Kayak route planning

Bring your own kayak or inquire with me about renting a kayak and all necessary gear for this course. Additionally, wet suit or dry suit and other personal accessories may be needed depending on water and land temperatures. Please contact me for more information or with any personal requests at (301)802-6120.
