Wilderness Voyageurs offers one of the best kayak instruction programs in the country. The waters of the Yough River are perfect for every level of experience, and our amazing team of instructors provide a safe, fun and technique-driven program. Whether you need to learn the basics or refine your current skill set, we’ve got you covered.
We offer kayak instruction in many forms, to suit your schedule, pace of learning or budget.
Private Instruction: is available any day for 1 or 2 persons. Ideal for those who want to fast track their learning, or if you have specific skill that you want to concentrate on.
Group instruction: Available any day for 3 or more people. If you have a group of friends that want to check out the sport, or you are group of paddlers looking to paddle new waters or work on specific skills and save some money, this is for you.
Our most popular instructional setting is our “Learn To Kayak Weekends”. These are offered the first and last weekend of each month throughout the summer. Come by yourself, come with a friend. They are prescheduled so you get the benefit of “group instruction” pricing, but do not need to hassle with coordinating with 2 other friends.
