Boating and Paddling are fun…We’ll show you how !

Paddling is an opportunity to get close to nature, have fun and get quality exercise. That’s why it’s the fastest growing part of recreational boating today. ASPS Kayak Seminar is intended for those about to join the sport or those considering purchasing paddling equipment. Seminar is open to the public.

This seminar will explain:

• How to safely and skillfully operate a kayak
• How to navigate safely on the water
• Different types of paddle craft
• Safety equipment you should have on board

In addition, we’ll introduce you to the terminology, safe practices, as well as day-tripping and touring options. After a one-hour review of equipment, techniques and safety considerations, you’ll get out on the water in a kayak and practice what you’ve learned!

You may get wet, so bring a towel, a change of dry clothes, sunscreen, a hat or visor and a bottle of water. Closed-toe water shoes (or tennis shoes) are recommended. ASPS kayaks will be used for this seminar, but those who have their own equipment may bring their own.

The seminar fee is $45.00 and includes handout materials. Members of ASPS get a $10 discount. There is a limit of 10 kayakers to each class. Please sign up early to reserve a spot!

The Paddle Smart “on-the-water” seminar will be offered evenings on the following Wednesdays, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM:
