Weekly Kayak Training
Weekly Kayak Training is a great option to keep you paddling, staying in shape and learning all year.
Start as a beginner, intermediate or advanced paddler. With regular professional guidance and training, progress forward each week to get to your next level. Our training will give you the confidence, experience and skill to paddle anywhere, in any water on your own.
You can also customize your training to focus on areas of interest whether it be racing, downwinding, surfing, touring, fitness, tidal rapids or fun paddling.
Kayaking is a naturally distanced outdoor activity which also reduces stress, is an all around workout and of course is super fun! On land we will wear masks and distance. On-water, no masks but distancing will be practiced.
Paddling locations can vary to introduce you to paddling in different places and types of water in the Puget Sound region. Add an extra travel fee for locations outside of the immediate Seattle area. My primary paddling spot in Seattle are Ballard’s Salmon and Shilshole Bays due to the dynamic water options available daily. If your interest is surfing and other non-Seattle locations, we’ll determine a different fee for each trip.
Fall and Winter Paddling Clothing is available for all your classes. See the details for pricing options.
Bonus Class Guides sent after you first class, and receive either a session summary and/or video feedback after each class. And you’ll be added to the Salmon Bay Paddle alumni group and receive Alumni discounts for future classes.
Your journey could begin with our weekly sessions or jumpstart your skills with our 2 session Kayaking L1 class then progressing and refining your technique over a period of weeks or months to intermediate and beyond. If you have an interest areas such as surfing, training will lead in that direction. If you don’t know, no worries! Paddling is a journey, you may find other areas of interest down the road!
