Learn to kayak

Presented by Ecomarine

Try kayaking with an experienced coach at your side! We will start by familiarizing ourselves with the kayaks and the gear. After that we will go out on the water and will learn some tips and tricks on how to paddle forwards, backwards and sideways and how to turn our kayaks. This is a great opportunity to get your feet wet and to find out if kayaking is for you.

Participant must be a minimum of 16 years of age.

Meeting Location: On the beach, East of the Jericho Sailing Centre, 1300 Discovery Street, Vancouver BC

What to Bring: Be prepared to get wet! Bring your bathing suit, shorts, hat, sunscreen, water shoes, towel and sense of adventure! Cotton clothing is not recommended.

Learn about:

  • Basics on kayaks and equipment
  • Forward and sweep strokes
  • Safety and fun on the water

Note: We will provide boats, paddles and safety gear for this clinic.
