Get Into Paddling

Get into Paddling is an affordable education course of three hours duration that provides an introduction for people who wish to learn to paddle either a kayak or a canoe on inland waterways.

The course programme, which is conducted by fully accredited instructors, is designed with the aim of giving you confidence to enjoy the excitement and challenge of paddling. You will be shown and have time to practice the basic paddle strokes for moving your craft safely and efficiently.

While the training is intensive, it is not physically demanding. As the course is practically oriented, most of the time will be spent paddling and practising paddle strokes.

Whilst every attempt is made by Canoe SA to provide courses that meet the description provided, weather or other environmental conditions may influence the decision of the leadership team of instructors about the safety of participants or the conduct of the course/workshop either before or during the event.

Cost $60

Course fees includes insurance, use of a kayak, course notes and certificate. The fee must be paid at the time of enrolment. Please note: If preferred, you may use your own craft.
