Introduction to Kayaking is a six-hour course focusing on skills needed for any type of kayak including but not limited to sit on tops, recreational, folding and inflatable. Simple rescues are demonstrated by the instructor combined with the paddling skills practiced by students to maneuver safely and comfortably on still water. Designed as a stand-alone course, students desiring more intensive skills would proceed to Level 2 or 3 to continue the learning and refinement process.  Participants must be able to manage personal care, be able to float on their back, turn from face down to face up while floating in the water with a properly fitting PFD, and remain sitting and balanced in a kayak (with adaptations if needed).
