We love introducing kayaking to kids, and our guides will ensure a good – and safe – time is had by all.
We use our recreational double kayaks – which are very easy to use – for kids camps, and ensure a 1 guide to 6 kids ratio. Camps start at 11am and end at 2pm. They will learn basic kayaking strokes, safety on the water and information on wind and map reading. Pack a lunch as the kids will have a picnic on the beach at Tuwanek Marine Park. Cost is $45 plus GST.
Our guides are certified through the Sea Kayak Guide Alliance of British Columbia, have first aid training. If a rescue is needed, Pedals and Paddles keeps a zodiac on site for a fast rescue as well as the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 12 team who is fully trained and ready to be dispatched if needed.
Pedals and Paddles take safety as our number one priority! We can proudly say that we have had no accidents since we opened in 1991. Although we do retain $5 million dollar liability insurance. A parental consent form is required.
