Introduction to Canoeing

If you’ve ever had trouble making a canoe go straight, you know that canoeing is not just second nature. With guidance, practice, and time, it can be elevated to an art. This course is designed for beginners and others desiring to improve their proficiency in flatwater canoeing.

We will cover basic techniques of paddling and precise maneuvering. Particular emphasis will also be placed on developing safety skills, including basic rescues, portaging, and cold-water preparedness. Our instructors will guide you through a steady progression of skill-building, designed to prepare you to explore ponds, rivers, and lakes on your own.

If, instead, you would like intermediate-level flatwater canoeing instruction, we are happy to schedule a private lesson for yourself or your group.

Intro to Canoeing meets for two 2-hour sessions at our Moody Street location in Waltham on the same day and time for two consecutive weeks (e.g. two Mondays in a row from 6–8pm). $99 Includes four hours of instruction, and two weeks of unlimited on-site practice time at any of our locations..
