The Learn to Kayak season has ended for 2019.

Learn to Kayak at BIAC

Learn how to cruise the bay on our sit-on-top kayaks. They are an easy and fun way to exercise while seeing part of bay few get to enjoy. This class is geared to those who have never tried a kayak or want tips on how to be successful. We teach proper form, maneuvering and how to navigate the inner harbor/Bair Island.

What is a kayak?

A kayak is a low-to-the-water, canoe-like boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation.

The cost of one Learn to Kayak session is $60 for two hours. Please register in advance to save a spot. There is a minimum enrollment of 3 people and maximum of 9. Participants 10-17 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
