Intro to Sea Kayaking @ Portland Paddle
Sep 22 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Intro to Sea Kayaking @ Portland Paddle | Portland | Maine | United States

This is the course to take if you are new to sea kayaking. You’ll learn all the basics of the sport and leave with the skills and knowledge needed to kayak on protected seas with other paddlers. Your instructor will get your group started onshore with a brief talk about boats and gear. Then you’ll get fitted into kayaks and head onto Casco Bay to learn the essential strokes of the sport. You’ll take a brief paddle in Portland harbor and practice strategies for safe paddling in open waters. Your instructor will customize the lesson to work with each students’ goals, experience level and interests. The level 2 class is offered the following weekend and we recommend taking the two courses together.
