(Prerequisite Guide Training for Employment)
Our Ultimate Sea Kayaker's Course is everything you need to become a confident, safe, and successful sea kayaker. Throughout our 40+ hour course we cover soup-to-nuts sea kayak skills with a focus toward guiding and leading trips for yourself, friends, family, or as an ERBA employee (graduates will have the opportunity to work as future ERBA guides).
No experience is necessary to enter the course. We teach all you need to know. Note: Water temperature and rescue drills requires all participates to own appropriate cold-water gear.
The majority of the course will be held on the water. We meet Sunday mornings and Thursday evenings. Additional Tuesday evening class is provided as an optional practice session in which students and instructors will go on an exploratory paddle.
