Learning Is Fun At The Kayak Academy
There is so much you need to learn that isn't being taught anywhere else. That is why we started the Kayak Academy - to offer instruction beyond the industry standards. Whether you come to us for a beginning kayak course, Eskimo roll lesson, or one of our Adventurous Journeys, your Kayak Academy instruction will be the most fun, exciting, and intense lessons you've ever had - on any subject! We spoil our students with great gear, patience, and individual attention. And if you rent a kayak from us during a lesson we'll pick the best ones for you to learn in from our fleet of over twenty-five top models of rudder-free rental sea kayaks. You can't get lessons like this at other kayak school.
We Teach Like We Wish We Were Taught
Experienced kayak instructors know there are significant differences between the way a good kayaker paddles and the way paddling technique is typically being taught. This dichotomy is especially true in challenging conditions when technique matters most. At the Kayak Academy we wouldn't feel right if we paddled one way on our own but taught students to paddle with older, less effective techniques. So we started an independent kayak school, developed our own safety based curriculum, and became the industry leaders. No other kayak school combines our ideal course locations, small class size limits, instructor experience, equipment selection, and student focused practical training. Our kayaking lessons are designed to maximize your learning and success. To learn more about our how we teach, read our Teaching Philosophy. Our Student Testimonials speaks for themselves
