Where to learn about sea kayaking

So, I was planning to write about the upcoming Mountaineers sea kayaking class. Turns out, though, that it’s pretty popular. So popular, in fact, that it has already filled up.

Given that it filled up, I figured that there’s an interest out there, though. I’ve gathered up some other ways you can learn about kayaking around here.

If you’d like to take the Everett Mountaineers course, you can put yourself on a waitlist. The class begins March 27.

The Seattle, Tacoma, Kitsap and Olympia branches of the Mountaineers are also offering the course. All of those courses start in April.

If you take one of the courses, you will learn how to safely explore the waters of the Northwest. You’ll learn paddling strokes, how to get back in your boat if you fall out, how to choose the proper gear, trip planning, dealing with currents and more. Once you complete the class requirements, you are eligible to go on Mountaineers kayak trips.

There are also a number of kayaking clubs in our area:
