Our Kayaking Discovery Course is a great way to learn the basic paddling techniques and safety skills of this popular sport.
Prerequisite: None
Activity level: Easy
Minimum age: 8 (14 and under with parent or guardian)
Course Description
Exploring nature in a kayak is a healthy and fun way to enjoy the outdoors. Our course begins with a brief introduction and safety talk from our friendly paddling instructors, who will share their knowledge gained from years of kayaking. They’ll outfit you with a personal flotation device (PFD), kayak and paddling equipment, giving you insight on the best ways to set up your boat. Then, you’ll receive instruction on a variety of paddling techniques.
After you feel comfortable on the water, you’ll set out in a kayak on a guided, interpretive tour with your group. You’ll experience the freedom of skimming across the water, learning about the ecosystem and history of the area. All necessary paddling equipment is provided.

Our Fly-Casting Discovery Course is fun, easy and led by expert instructors who’ll gladly teach you the skills to cast your first fly.
Prerequisite: None

Course Description
There are few things more rewarding than watching a trout rise to your fly. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss. Our course offers you a great opportunity to try fly casting in a friendly and supportive environment. After brief introductions and safety talk, you’ll learn the components of a fly-rod outfit. Then our experienced instructors, who’ve acquired a wealth of fishing and casting knowledge over the years, will teach you the four-part cast, false cast and roll cast – foundational skills on which to build more advanced casting techniques. You’ll also have ample time to practice your skills with our instructors, so you can confidently cast on your own.
All necessary fly-casting equipment is provided.
