Beginner Kayak - Active Adults 55+

This two-hour course is specifically designed for individuals aged 55 and up! It is the perfect opportunity to learn the sport you've always wanted to try. Our experienced instructors will provide lessons on different types of kayak designs, materials, and equipment. Additionally, they will provide insights on how to deal with mobility issues and other challenges faced by more mature bodies. Students will learn how to get into the kayak, paddle, turn, and ensure safety during the course. The emphasis will be on helping students feel comfortable while beginning with flatwater kayaking. We use high-quality boats, paddles, and PFDs for the lessons, and you will learn on the water in the serene section of the Farmington River behind our shop. Come and have some fun on the water at Collinsville Canoe & Kayak!
