Introduction to Canoeing 2-hours (first participant)


This course covers all the basics of canoeing, from loading the canoe onto the crossbars of a vehicle and getting in and out of the canoe, to guiding you through your first paddle strokes and current crossings. Starting on dry land, we will go over water safety basics and how to set up your equipment. We will then take you into a calm waterway to go over position, team coordination, balance and paddling techniques. Based on your comfort we will then travel along calm waterways to explore the Howe Sound. This course is perfect for those who have never put foot in a canoe. This 2-hour course is weather dependent and includes all gear.
