Get Started

The Get Started course is ideal for those who have very little or no experience canoeing

It is a single session held at Warrandyte on a Saturday or Sunday morning, on the Yarra River. The lesson runs for about 2.5 hours and covers the basics: paddling forward (in a STRAIGHT line!), turning, moving sideways, safety considerations and of course, the capsize drill. This ensures you get wet - from head to toe.


Whether you've dreamed of drifting idyllically down a tranquil river or getting into the adrenaline-pumping roar of white water this course is your starting point. It's a great way to meet a paddling partner and find out if paddling is for you!
