Sea Kayak Rescues and Recovery

This class is for kayakers who want to learn the finer points self and assisted rescues, including bracing, towing and re-entering your kayak in the event of a capsize.  This is an immersion class, so bring (or you can rent) a wetsuit or drysuit.


So you know your boat, but don't know what to do in the event of a capsize? Learn the finer points of bracing, and in a worst case scenario, re-entering your kayak. It is important that every sea kayaker is comfortable with self rescue in the event of a capsize or other unforeseen events. Bring, borrow, or rent a wetsuit for this cold water immersion and kayak re-entry class (we have a variety of wetsuits available for $10 rental). We will discuss and practice the assisted rescue as well as deploy the paddle floats to practice the self rescue. Class sizes are limited to 6, so please make a reservation. Bring your boat if you have it!
