Our fun, full-day sea kayaking course will have you going farther and faster in a kayak. Join Registered Maine Guides for a skills workshop in advanced strokes and safety techniques.

Improve your paddling efficiency, ability and confidence in this full-day course ? the perfect follow-up to our Introduction to Sea Kayaking. Offered in the natural beauty and relaxed seaside surroundings of Casco Bay, this information-packed day of instruction will prepare you for more ambitious kayaking adventures.
In a small-class environment, our experts will teach you edging, bracing and sculling techniques. Edging will enhance your boat handling skills like turning while underway or staying on course in a breeze. Bracing and sculling will help prevent capsizing, giving you the confidence to really utilize the edging component.
With edging and bracing practice, capsizes are bound to happen. Our experts will demonstrate some advanced rescue techniques that go beyond the paddle float rescue taught in our Introduction to Sea Kayaking course.
You’ll have plenty of time to practice the basic body mechanics of these advanced paddling strokes and boat handling skills. You will also learn how to effectively move your kayak laterally (sideways) with some different draw strokes. By the end of this course, you will have gained an enhanced awareness of how your boat, paddle and body work together efficiently.
