Kids' Kayaking Class

Kids in our Sea Kayak Camp paddle in Cohasset Harbor.
The key to teaching kids to paddle is to make learning fun. Our kids kayaking classes are taught by instructors who have experience teaching children and want kids to have a blast.
All our classes emphasize safety on the water. We begin with an on-land introduction to equipment and basic paddle strokes. After that, we get on the water and use games instructional sessions, and plenty of practice time to develop more advanced skills while ensuring an enjoyable and exciting experience.
Classes are kept small, with a maximum student/instructor ratio of 6:1, and are designed for children ages 10 to 13.
Two-Lesson Kids' Kayak Class meets for 2-hour sessions at our Newton Boathouse on the same day and time for two consecutive weeks (e.g. two Sundays in a row from 10am–Noon)
$75 includes four hours of instruction, boat rental, and three weeks of unlimited on-site practice time at any of our locations when accompanied by an adult.
