Trying to get into a sea kayak without a paddleFuture Registered Maine Guides for Sea Kayak and Tide-Water Fishing specialties need to know how to paddle a sea kayak and a SUP correctly. They also need to know how to teach those skills to clients and how to rescue an unexpected swimmer or a capsized sea kayak. 

Join a workshop to learn and practice these skills. Participants must wear either a wetsuit or drysuit and a PFD at all times.  This is an outdoor workshop that is dependent on open calm water. Location will be decided the week prior to the event, but will be in the greater Brunswick, ME area. You will be cooking a hot lunch for yourself and providing personal snacks because of Covid-19.
