This 24 hour + course includes the latest ACA course requirements for Level 3 with some additional tools that only 30 plus years of paddling history can provide. We combine “Coastal Kayak Basic Strokes and Rescues” along with a “Strokes and Maneuver’s refinement” and group leadership on water. On land we’ll cover practical navigation, radio use, rules of the navigable road and emergency equipment. In the water, we’ll cover a variety of group and solo rescues, bracing, boat handling and towing scenarios. This workshop is held in our Northwest Michigan base, giving us access to multiple venues to provide a variety of conditions including moving water. Since food is provided and we’re all based out of the same location with a instructor/student ratio of 1:3, you are assured of a great inclusive experience tailored to your learning style.


You will also have access to a wide variety of kayaks, paddling and rescue gear to supplement what you bring to the table. Expect to have rec boats and possibly even SUPs thrown into the mix, so you learn how to rescue in a wide variety of scenarios. You’ll work hard, eat hearty and have more fun than anyone should be allowed during an “instructional” program!
