Safety Courses

Safety and risk management are built into all of our courses, but here are some whose focus is more specific.

Kayak Safety Review Half Day


3 hours on the Loreto waterfront
Includes permits & equipment

Capsizing calmly and knowing how to get back in with help is the primary objective of this short course. If you haven’t practiced falling out in a while, why not join us for a half-day Safety Review? We know how to make it fun! Well, most of it, anyway. The Safety Review is designed especially for those who have some kayaking experience but have never practiced falling out and would like to join us for a trip that requires it. If there is time to go on after accomplishing the primary objective, we can proceed to things like bracing for support, re-entering solo, tips for efficient paddling, or even starting to learn the roll.

Kayak Safety Review Full Day


6 hours on the Loreto waterfront
Includes permits, equipment & lunch

Start with a calm wet exit and getting back into your kayak, and proceed to things like bracing for support, re-entering solo, tips for efficient paddling, or even starting to learn the roll. Also learn how to help each other get back into a kayak, and move to shore with support. Similar to the half-day Safety Review, but longer! This means more practice, more time to consolidate the skills, and additional skills. This is a full day of being in & out of the water, so it also takes more energy.

Foundation Safety & Rescue Training

2 days on the Loreto waterfront
Includes permits, equipment, and lunch

This course is often run in conjunction with Sea Paddler Training or any leadership or coaching course. It is particularly valuable to do as a group if you are training guides for your organization, as it helps to clarify safety protocols within the team. We will use a variety of watercraft including open kayaks (SOT), sea kayaks, paddle boards, and open canoes. Foundation Safety & Rescue Training is a British Canoeing course which includes certification upon completion.

Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning

Coastal Nav is considered a safety course for its power of prevention. Informed and prepared paddlers will be aware of the risks involved in their trip and able to plan appropriately. This course is often run in conjunction with Sea Paddler Training and Sea Leader Training. It is officially a classroom course, though we plan to apply our learning in context on the water the second day. It is a British Canoeing course which includes certification upon completion.
