This is a great first step to learning about canoeing. The class is taught in tandem recreational canoes, which offer the stability that new paddlers need. We will learn about carrying canoes, launching and getting out of our canoes, basic paddling strokes and maneuvering your craft. Learn the right way right from the start. 

Two hours of good instruction is worth two years of trial and error.

" In two hours Umiak's kayaking expert Sawyer was able to take a family that had never kayaked before and made us completely comfortable to do a 4-hour river trip the next day. The instruction was easy and personalized. Sawyer fielded all sort of different questions and built our confidence. He definitely was the introduction we needed to the sport. colors, it was a very pleasant trip. "
