Choose Between Two Options

  • $25 for a Basics of Kayaking course or Back to Nature kayak tour for one (up to a $50 value)
  • $49 for a Basics of Kayaking course or Back to Nature kayak tour for two (up to a $100 value)

During the 2.5-hour Basics of Kayaking course, instructors outline the different types of kayaks and how they vary according to their intended uses. A maximum of six students learn to set up, sit inside, and carry their assigned craft before leaving the land to practice five fundamental strokes.

Alternatively, groups of up to seven can depart on the two-hour Back to Nature tour through the Irondequoit Creek wetlands. Once they've absorbed key safety tips and paddling instruction, patrons navigate the Dansville River in their chosen boat: a single kayak, double kayak, canoe, or duck-drawn sled. Guides narrate the environment's history, from the geoscience of the glacial period to the era of Native Americans, culminating in evidence of modern man's influence. Sightseers might glimpse gliding herons, sunbathing turtles, or swimming beavers on their tour, in addition to plants that have grown on the shores for 300 million years.

Customers need not have any previous kayaking or canoeing experience prior to the course or tour.
