Kayaking Lessons in Vancouver

Get Schooled at North Shore Kayaks

Whether you have never paddled a kayak before or if you just need some tips to perfect your eskimo roll, our kayak instructors are here to teach you. All lessons are performed in an outdoor classroom at the water’s edge. Once the basic elements of paddling have been reviewed, our lessons are coupled with a day trip where your instructor will watch you paddle and make tips accordingly so you can per-fect your strokes.

We recommend to those taking beginner lessons to request Deep Cove as their location since paddling conditions are significantly calmer here than in Horseshoe or English Bay. Knowledge of streamline, bulk heads, seat position, basic accessories, packing and the best balancing techniques in the face of big waves will give you the knowledge, confidence, proficiency, and zest to begin a the paddling journey of a lifetime.

At North Shore Kayaks, all lessons are performed before a day trip, so our guides can see you paddle and offer tips on the water. Lessons are performed at our client’s request before their scheduled tips and offer basic instruction to help beginners feel confident in their kayak. Advanced lessons are also available on the water for those looking to perfect more advanced techniques.
