This brief tour introduces those with no experience to the fun of kayaking in either single or tandem sea kayaks. Our instructors will teach you how to land and launch your kayak properly, how to apply basic strokes to maneuver your kayak, and provide coaching as needed to paddle your kayak effectively. Our trip will meander along the shoreline of Elk Rock State Park to view the high sandstone cliffs and if time permits learn a little about the geology of the area, discover a few historical facts, and see a variety of wildlife.
An email will be sent after registration with details about where to meet, what to bring, and what to expect during the tour.
Cost: $64.20 includes all equipment (kayak, paddle, PFD)
