Our professionally trained and experienced Instructors can tailor your time to accommodate your goals and needs.

Interested in receiving a Private Lesson?  Do you have more than 4 people? Please email or call 360.297.4659 to schedule a date, time, location and let us know what your goals are for your lesson.


Kayak Lesson: It is always a good idea to use your own equipment for your lesson.  If you bring your own kayak it needs to be fully compartmentalized, water tight bulkheads forward and aft.  Don't worry if you don't have a kayak, we can match you with one that will be appropriate for both your stature and skill level.  

Paddlers are also encouraged to bring their own immersion gear (dry suit or wet suit), especially if we are going to practice capsize recovery.  If you don't have the appropriate Immersion gear you can rent that gear from us!

  • Expedition Prep.
  • Stroke Technique
  • Self Rescue

Dry Suit Rental:        Wet Suit Rental:

SUP Lesson:  Again your own gear is best!  If you bring your own board please make sure that you also have a Life Jacket and a Leash.  Don't have a board?  No problem we got you covered.  Just let us know a little bit about your experience and stature and we will get you taken care of.
