Intro to Canoeing

Our introduction to canoeing session is ideal for complete beginners, or people returning to canoeing after a break. Let our guides introduce you to the basics of moving and controlling your canoe, get a feel for the boat and the environment, then maybe learn a rescue technique or two. If you feel confident, we'll also take a short journey around the lake. Lessons are around 90 minutes long + changing time.
