An great experience and I can't wait to do it again. Just need to make sure I eat before going next time :)

Would do it again!! Beautiful, serene surroundings. Instructor was very relaxed and kind enough to wait for me (I was 5 minutes late) to start.

The staff is awesome. Extremely helpful, attentive and fun. I learned a lot at my very first SUP lesson. I would highly recommend anyone to Potomac Paddle Sports.

What You'll Get


Even though water covers most of the earth's surface, humans spend most of their lives on land and a small portion in the air while they're sleeping. Float on with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $79 for a sea-kayaking fundamentals class for one (a $165 value)
  • $139 for a sea-kayaking fundamentals class for two (a $330 value)

The second option is good for two sea-kayaking fundamentals classes, each for a different person.

Instructors teach essential skills and techniques for safe kayaking during five-hour lessons at Riley's Lock in Poolesville. Students will learn how to safely and elegantly launch and land their vessel, as well as a variety of paddling strokes for propelling and turning the kayak. Instructors also teach torso-rotation techniques that relieve strain on the arms and shoulders while paddling.

Classes meet at 8 a.m. Click here for class dates and more information.
