Get Paddling

A full day course that is held on the Yarra river at Warrandyte

Comprised of two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, this course is designed for those with little or no experience who want to learn to canoe or kayak. The morning introduction session teaches you the basics of flat-water paddling and is the same as the "GET STARTED" course.  After lunch at Warrandyte Bakery, this is where GET PADDLING really takes off!!  This is when we do a trip down the Yarra through the rapids!  You have learnt the skills - now you get to put them in action.

This full day on the water will give you enough skills and confidence to get out and practise with a friend. In addition to what is covered on the Get Started course you will find out more about controlling your boat and more safety points, including some of the do's and don'ts of paddling and the capsize drill - so you know you can get out of your boat comfortably.
