Paddling and safety instructions are provided at the start of all kayak adventures.
In addition, Artist Boat can offer the following entry level American Canoe Association (ACA) Kayak and Paddling courses for 4-10 people upon request:
QuickStart Your Kayak:
QuickStart is a brief, level one three-hour introduction to paddling a kayak. Students are presented with basic information on dressing to paddle safely, potential hazards and simple rescues. A minimal paddle skill set is presented and practiced, allowing students to safely and comfortably maneuver on still water. While designed as a stand-alone, introductory course, QuickStart students often progress to the Introduction to Kayak course to acquire greater paddling skill through significantly more guided, on-water practice time.
