CANOE BASICS (Solo or Tandem)
Offered as a Private (one person) @ $60 per hour or Semi-Private (two people) @ $90 per hour.


Enjoy an exploration of the original North American public transportation! The course objective is to enable you to paddle with control on protected waters. You will learn about boat designs, materials and equipment. Students will practice getting into the boat from shore and dock, paddling forward and backward, turning, sideways maneuvers and safety. Emphasis will be on students learning to steer and coordinate with a partner for a fun paddling experience. This class will prove that 'tippy canoe...' is a rhyme and not a fact.


Registration is required. Payment is due in full at time of registration. For Private or Semi-Private classes please call the shop to schedule.

Students canceling with 48 hours or more notice will receive a full refund. Sorry, cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice will receive no refund. Students who fail to appear will also forfeit the entire lesson fee. In the event that CCK cancels a class due to lack of enrollment, severe weather or emergency, students may reschedule or receive a full refund.

Rates are subject to change without notice.
