Have you been out sea kayaking and didn’t realize there is safety training needed? Or has is just been a while since you have practiced doing a wet exit and recovery? Or are you interested in renting our sea kayaks but have never done a wet exit or recovery? This course is designed to get you quickly out on the water practicing wet exits, and reentries. You will learn how to slow down and think through the steps, disengage your sprayskirt, and to get out of the boat to then begin the reentry. You will practice several methods of reentering your kayak including using a paddle float, cowboy method, and assisted. We provide you with all the gear needed including a wetsuit and spray jacket to keep you warm. If you would like to use your own boat that is okay too.
