We teach all level of kayakers: beginners, intermediate, and advanced kayakers. Below you will find a basic explanation of each category to better assess your kayaking abilities. When scheduling a private lesson or joining a class please consider your abilities and the level of the course, or if you prefer call us to discuss which course is best for you.


Beginners: We consider a beginner kayaker to be a new(er) paddler who has not had the experience of a wet exit from a kayak or a kayak roll. Beginners are still learning to paddle in a straight line and have limited experience in moving water.

Intermediates: An intermediate kayaker will likely have a kayak roll that works most of the time, paddle proficiently in a straight line, and exhibit boat control in moving to easy whitewater up to about Class 2+.

Advanced: An advanced paddler does well in Class 3, hit their rolls, but are bit overwhelmed when confronted with Class 4 rapids.
