Quick Start PLUS
A two evening progression including the lake and the beautiful Bow River


The Quick Start Plus Recreational Kayaking Course is a 2 x 2.5 hour evening program.


The aim of this program is to introduce participants to the basics of recreational kayaking both a flatwater and slow moving water environment.  Our instructors will introduce, demonstrate, and help the paddler practise basic paddling techniques, rescue and safety concepts, cover good location options (for after the course), talk about gear and much more.


After completing this course, participants can expect to feel confident in heading out to sheltered bodies of flatwater and a specific section of the Bow River in Calgary on self directed paddling trips.
