Paddles aweigh! You can learn the basics of paddle water sports with a 90 minute hands-on course this year. Ride a sit-on-top kayak or a stand-up paddle board. The Adventure Course is led by the Community Boating Center in partnership with Moondance Sea Kayak Adventures, Kite Paddle Surf, Recreation Northwest, the U.S. Coast Guard and other marine businesses. You will be introduced to the basics of marine weather and navigation, safety gear and preparation, paddling and boating techniques, and the FUN of being on the water. Reserve your spot now. Space is limited to the first 80 who pre-register for the Intro Paddle Adventure Course. If you watch from shore you will also be able to learn from on-site narration provided by a marine recreation professional.
