KAYAK ACADEMY
Seattle, Washington
1-206-527-1825
www.kayakacademy.com

Sea kayaking lessons from an authority on safety and technique. Every aspect of our kayaking school is a reflection of our commitment to put the student’s needs first. No other kayak school combines our ideal course locations, class size limits, instructor experience, and equipment selection. If you believe kayaking lessons are worth taking, then we feel it’s worth teaching them well. Our kayaking lessons are designed to maximize your learning and success. We screen out people who can’t swim or aren’t phyiscally prepared so you won’t be held back by someone who isn’t ready. We provide free use of dry suits and wet suits to all our students (It’s common knowledge that kayakers learn faster when they aren’t getting cold). We spoil our renters with a selection of eleven sizes of the best handling rudder-free composite kayaks available, neoprene spray skirts, comfortable pfd’s, and light-weight paddles; for students bringing their own kayaks, we check to be sure the equipment you bring is appropriate and fits you well — practicing in a kayak that doesn’t fit you properly is a waste of your time and money. We will also show you ways to improve your own gear, and we’ll even loan you any other equipment you need for the lesson.
