Level 2 Sea Kayaking Course

Successful performance at this level indicates that a candidate has the personal skill level to paddle single or multi-day journeys in a moderate water environment with winds not exceeding Beaufort Force 5.

The Level 2 course has the skills and judgement to select appropriate environments for paddlers with a range of experience.
Suited to paddlers who have begun to learn (but not necessarily mastered) bracing, rescue techniques, paddling in adverse conditions and are ready to push themselves a bit further.
Boat readiness, paddling in wind, waves, and confused seas, and rock gardens as well as launching and coming ashore in moderate surf & rough water safety and rescues will be emphasized in this course. In the meantime, we will enjoy the spectacular and varied shoreline of Crete.
Class size will be limited to 4 in order to maximize personal instruction and safety.


Cost: 300€ per person.
