Make the sea your playground
Sea Paddler Training is a 6-day expedition/course that combines camping, adventure and skill-building for contextual dynamic learning experiences. The Loreto National Marine Park provides rocky features, close islands, periodic surf, and warm water, as well as stunning mountain scenery for your learning pleasure!
This course/trip is designed for paddlers with a solid foundation of boat handling skills in sheltered water and good physical fitness who would like to progress into more exciting conditions. We may experience up to 15kts of wind and a meter of surf. We integrate related programs in this course, such as aspects of British Canoeing’s new Paddlesport Safety and Rescue course and navigation basics. The training is appropriate for American Canoe Association’s Level 3 Coastal Kayaking and British Canoeing’s Sea Kayak Award.
If you are already an accomplished bouncy-water paddler, you are welcome to join us for the purpose of receiving feedback about where your skills are in relation to international standards of certification (ie. take an assessment). You may encounter opportunities to further refine your skills or knowledge, or you may choose this course to enhance your own coaching in sea conditions. Please let us know a minimum of 2 months in advance of this event if you would like to be assessed ($100 assessment fee covers reporting costs).
Sea Kayak Baja Mexico makes British Canoeing & ACA courses accessible to Latin American participants. Taking this training in Baja is an exciting cultural travel adventure with a purpose, and a common link with local participants, many of whom are Baja guides. The background of the participants, as well as the experience of the coaches, enriches any course. Sea Paddler Course will be run by a bilingual coaching team featuring Ginni Callahan and one of her certified and experienced guide/coaching staff.
With skills to handle wind, waves and surf, these become resources and sources of joy. Come play and learn!
