Service Description

This training is designed for recreational paddlers looking to gain experience and skills for self guided multi-day sea kayak trips. In the classroom we'll learn how to navigate with chart and compass, gain a deeper understanding of tides (and how to use the Canadian Tide and Current Tables), and learn how weather affects sea state. We'll then apply these skills on the water as we journey, surf, play in tidal currents and plan an overnight trip! Paddle Canada Level 2 skills certification available. This program is two weekends in length (June 3rd/4th, June 10th/11th).

Matt taught us how to edge, surf, navigate, roll, plan and rescue. After taking the course I feel much more confident in rougher waters and in my ability to rescue others. Matt is patient, (&) easy to learn from." - Ben, TripAdvisor Time: Meet at 8:30am the first day of the training Cost: $695 per person+tax E-mail info@candleboxkayaking.com for a program information package.
