Join Nick in Brooklin, Maine for "Family Week" at the WoodenBoat School for fun and adventure while learning the basics of sea kayaking. With over 40 years of kayaking experience, Nick is an accomplished kayaking instructor and coach.
While exploring and playing around the islands and coves of Brooklin, Maine, you will learn how to control your kayak, rescue yourself and others, use a chart and compass to navigate, predict conditions using weather forecasts, and how to dress appropriately to stay safe. Be prepared to swim in cool ocean waters. This course is designed for pairs of one adult and one youth over the age of 12. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult.
Kayaks, paddles, spray skirts, and life jackets will be provided by the school, but students are welcome and encouraged to bring their own if desired.
