Private Lessons

If you want to learn how to kayak and/or want to learn how to rescue yourself and others on the water, we recommend taking a private lesson. We will teach you how to get in and out of the boat properly, how to paddle, how to steer, how to be safe on the water, and if you want to get wet, how to rescue yourself and others!  We recommend 1.5-2 hours for a lesson. We do lessons from Port Clyde or from where you are located if it’s on the water and not too far away. Lessons are a minimum of 90 minutes and are $120/hour ($180 for 90 minutes).

Please call for availability. 

*For kayak tours, kids under 3’10” and 70 pounds sit in the middle hatch in a tandem kayak (minimum age of 3), between a front and back paddler from the same group.  For other children who will paddle in the front of back of the kayak,  we require a minimum age of 10 for paddling. Please call the shop if you have an experienced younger child or if you have any questions about this. We care about the comfort and safety of you and your children! If a kid is under 16 years old, an accompanying adult needs to be on the tour too or you can schedule a private tour.
