Kayak School and Classes
Can spending $75 save your life? It could. Uncommon Adventures offers a variety of regularly scheduled classes and weekend workshops to aid in your kayak skills development. Our primary emphasis is to help you have more fun on the water while moving you up the learning curve more quickly. Naturally, this also has the added advantage of learning fundamental kayak safety...we like repeat business, so teaching you the fundamentals of recoveries and rescues are part of the very first lesson.
Instruction on our tours: The best way to develop good paddling habits and technique is by repeating them. What better way than to have a certified instructor at your disposal over a number of days? That is the advantage of a multi-day tour. When you return you'll have learned all sorts of kayak skills, but also weather reading, handling winds, some fundamental navigation, maybe a few new stars, bird calls, tall tales and new tricks for turning out gourmet edibles in the backcountry. You will also have made some new friends who enjoy the same activities as you.
Our Instructional menu:
- Basic Coastal Kayaking
- Coastal Kayaking II
- The Eskimo Roll
- The Surf Zone
