The Recreational Kayak River Safety course is a 2.5 hour evening session on the Bow River in Calgary.
The aim of this program is to arm paddlers looking to explore Class I and II moving water from recreational, crossover or whitewater kayaks with basic safety and rescue skills that will prevent incidents from happening or in the case of something going wrong the skills to quickly and competently resolve the situation.
Particpants can expect to leave this course with a sound knowledge and understanding of river hazards, how to avoid them, use of a throwbag, assisted and self rescue techniques and more. After this program paddlers should be capable of running Class I moving rivers with confidence and have the rescue skills to cover most Class II scenarios.
