Our private lesson option offers you complete flexibility to learn to kayak alone, with friends or as a family. Book your private 2 hour lesson at Cultus Lake here for up to 4 people. If you want to book for 5-8 people you can register 2 groups in the same time slot (we have two instructors available).

COVID-19 update: safety is our number one concern. Small group sizes and paddling with friends and family decreases the risk of infection. All equipment is disinfected between participants and social distancing will be practiced on the water except where it would be unsafe to do so for safety or emergency management. Please note we will not be teaching the kayak roll until further notice because it is not possible to maintain physical distancing when teaching this skill.

**IMPORTANT: EVERYONE in your group must be a member in order for you to chose the member-only price. Youth membership $25, Adult membership $40, Family membership $100 (membership forms are attached and should be sent to [email protected] ).

Member lesson cost is $50 for 1-2 people and $80 for 3-4 people. Book 4 or more lessons and GET 20% OFF!! NOTE: If you do not wish to pay using Paypal, please email us for details about paying by e-transfer.

All equipment is provided (kayak, helmet, paddle, PFD, spray skirt)

Lessons are scheduled at Cultus Lake and designed to teach basic/ intermediate paddling skills on the lake. Please arrive at the meet-location 5-10 minutes early and ready to paddle.
