Our course begins with a brief introduction and safety talk from our friendly paddling instructors, who will share their accumulated wisdom from years of paddle boarding. They’ll outfit you with a personal flotation device (PFD), paddle board and paddling equipment, giving you insight on the best ways to set up your board. You’ll receive instruction on a variety of paddling strokes and have the opportunity to practice each stroke by the shore.

After you feel comfortable on the water, you’ll set out in a guided, interpretive tour with your group. You’ll experience the freedom of skimming across the water, learning about the ecosystem and history of the area.

All necessary paddleboarding equipment is provided.
