Kayak Training

There are various places that provide training so you can enjoy kayaking and be safe at the same time.
The Valley Wide Club highly recommends training with Aqua Adventures.


AQUA ADVENTURES in San Diego (619) 523-9577

They offer training both in a swimming pool or in the Bay at Mission Bay. There are a variety of classes to meet various skill levels.

Led by Jen Kleck who is one of the top coaches in the country, yet she is very down to earth. Jen achieved the highest coaching ranking in Nov 2007 and became the first American Level 5 Sea Kayak Coach. She also holds BCU 5Star Leader Sea, 4Star Surf and 3Star Open Canoe awards.

Just like Jen all the instructors are trained and certified to the high standards of the British Canoe Union (BCU).

Class sizes are limited to ensure as much personal instruction as possible. Private lessons are also available.
