Overview:

Always wanted to paddle the open waters of the Chesapeake Bay? Let REI professional instructors teach you the necessary coastal paddling skills and build your confidence to get out on our region's most iconic body of water. Your day begins with a beach launch at Sandy Point State Park. We'll review the fundamental paddle strokes to control your kayak. Then you'll be introduced to edging to enhance your boat handling skills, and bracing to help prevent capsizes and build your confidence. Lastly, you'll learn how to safely exit a capsized kayak and re-enter it on the water. After lunch we'll put your new skills to use on the water as we paddle out to the Sandy Point Lighthouse and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Roundtrip transportation from REI, all paddle equipment and box lunch is provided. Prerequisite: Learn to Kayak or equivalent experience. Ages 18+.
