This outdoors skills-development program is open to all individuals 12 or older in moderate physical condition. 

The Quickstart Your Kayak workshop is a brief introduction to paddling a kayak. Students are presented with basic information on dressing to paddle safely, planning and setting up, potential hazards and simple rescues. A minimal paddle skill set consisting of 4 basic strokes is presented and practiced, allowing students to safely and comfortably maneuver on still water. In addition, there will be a brief talk about kayak fishing and rigging; this is Matagorda afterall!

The course fee does not include equipment rental. A Kayak with paddle and PFD are available for rent at a discounted rate of $35 for the class.
