This is one of our most popular courses and transforms day paddlers into kayak trippers by increasing personal paddling skills and knowledge of navigation on the water. Along the beautiful and rugged Shores of Georgian Bay, paddlers gain the skills and experience to head out on overnight trips with friends and paddling clubs.
Immersed in the fresh air and beauty of a wilderness classroom and the crystal clear waters of Georgian Bay, Paddle Canada Level 2 participants will learn and work together, taking turns to lead the group plan routes and play the victim who needs rescuing! This is a fun course that lets you learn by actually getting out and paddling in a number of stunning locations in our UNESCO Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve. Our incredible highly trained and experienced instructors have been teaching the Paddle Canada system for as long as Paddle Canada has existed. We have the patience and know-how to help you improve your skills dramatically.
Accommodation is included in the course fees for the entire course in our prospector tents with comfy beds on raised platforms at our home base in Parry Sound, ON. Our centre is COVID-friendly with 6′ long tables in our outdoor kitchen pavilion, hot outdoor showers, and plenty of space to study and learn safely. There is even fridge space for you! Prepare your own meals or head to the restaurants of Parry Sound only 5 minutes away.
Paddle Canada Level 2 skills certification may be achieved during this course upon meeting the required standards. We are passionate about helping paddlers pursue their goals. Assessment is ongoing during the trip, with one-on-one assistance provided for skills that aren’t clicking.
