Fundamentals of Whitewater Canoeing
This weekend introductory course in the basics of whitewater canoeing stresses technique, safety and enjoyment. Instruction is designed to provide both an understanding of the principals of canoeing in class II whitewater and an opportunity to develop skill through practice. You will learn about equipment, strokes, whitewater maneuvers (e.g., upstream and downstream ferries, eddy turns and peel-outs), river reading, safety, rescue techniques and knot tying. You will also have an opportunity to paddle both solo and in tandem. If the opportunity presents itself, we will take time to observe wildlife.
Fee: $165 per person.
