The Paddle Canada Level 1 kayaking certification course provides the skills and knowledge necessary for day-long kayaking trips in remote settings. The course is crucial if you are planning on doing more remote trips or paddling on larger bodies of water away from shore. Successful completion of Level 1 indicates competence to paddle a sea kayak within a sheltered bay in the company of one or more paddlers with Level 1 or greater skill and knowledge. This course will teach you how to safely exit the kayak after a capsize, how to re-enter the kayak with a partner or solo, and to do it all safely and efficiently. The course also covers day-tripping skills such as Navigation, Weather, and equipment choices. Successful completion of the course will give you a certificate for Level-1
