Join us to learn key self-rescue skills!
Our Flatwater Kayak Safety Rescue course introduces essential flatwater safety practices and rescue techniques that can be performed with a minimum of equipment - in the first few minutes of an emergency. The course covers key self-rescue skills for different mobility levels, and kayak types as well as assisted rescues, rope handling skills, and more. The focus is on fast, simple, low-risk rescue techniques to manage minor in-water incidents.
We are happy to provide you with a kayak (paddle and PFD included) to use during your class free of charge. This is particularly beneficial when you are just starting out and are still trying to figure out which kayak is right for you. If you already own a kayak it is advisable to learn and get used to your own kayak. However, we may require you to use one of our kayaks if we consider yours to be unsafe or inappropriate for the class.
What to Bring
*Dress according to the weather (bring extra layers in cold weather)
*For any of our rescue classes participants are asked to dress for complete immersion
*Sun protection (e.g., hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, long sleeves)
