Capsizes happen - even to the best kayakers. Knowing how to get back into your boat while in deep water will give you confidence in all conditions. We'll talk about dressing for conditions and carrying rescue gear on your boat. Learn and practice proper wet exits, as well as re-entry. Review the proper technique for forward, reverse, and draw strokes. We'll learn to rescue ourselves and others with Eskimo, 'T' and paddle float rescues.

" 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. "
