"I couldn't believe how easy paddling was after our lesson. After a lifetime spent paddling canoes, I'm never going back. For the first time, I could turn a boat with very little effort or thought. Thanks to you, my good teachers at Kit's Crusades!"

Kayaking Lessons From Deep Cove North Vancouver

After 15 years we still believe it to be a privilege to offer custom lessons and pricing to recreation groups, disabled persons, community centres, high schools, and ESL schools. Our locations in Deep Cove (in North Vancouver) and on the Sunshine Coast (especially Egmont) are excellent venues specialized sea kayaking classes. These areas are endowed with excellent public beaches with easy water access, park facilities and washrooms.

A professional introduction to sea kayaking will furnish you forever with the main skills to improve your kayaking or start kayaking immediately. Knowledge of streamline, bulk heads, seat position, basic accessories, packing and the best balancing techniques in the face of big waves will give you the knowledge, confidence, proficiency, and zest to begin a the paddling journey of a lifetime.

Corporate / Community / Groups Trips / Custom Day Trips

We offer good times and skill development to a variety of custom groups. We often host large corporate groups, school groups, ESL classes and local high school classes for years. It's your call -- the duration of your kayak lesson can be anywhere from 3 hours to a full day. 

Usually, each day trip starts with a brief introductory lesson or a refresher for more experienced paddlers. After a short intro, we "get Pacific" and paddle for about an hour before beaching for a picnic. From there we can either return to our launchsite or paddle further, all decisions are made by a group consensus.

In past years, groups have included professional hockey teams, rugby teams, high school PE classes, corporate staff outings, special needs groups and even a group from a senior's centre on the North Shore. ** photo archive coming soon **

Costs for most day trips include professional guides, kayak instruction, double or single kevlar Kayaks, paddles, life jackets, pumps, tents, and group picnic gear.

Optional inclusion is a professional photographer : the choice is yours.
