Sea Kayak Lessons for Beginner and Intermediate Students



At Salish Sea Kayak School (SSKS), we are passionate about sea kayaking!  And we love to teach!  We dedicate our time and energy to creating  a fun and supportive learning environment for students.  Plus, we understand that not everybody is a world class athlete.  We work with students of nearly all athletic capabilities.


We offer small group classes as well as semi-private and private lessonsAt SSKS, we love to provide our students with plenty of individual attention!  


SSKS specializes in customizing class content to suit your needs.  We also offer a flexibility in scheduling.  Life is complicated and almost always busy.   We know “weekends” aren’t always Saturday – Sunday.  If our scheduled classes don’t work for you, contact us.  We can teach mornings, afternoons, and evenings throughout the week.


SSKS also caters to special events.  We’ve worked with groups for reunions, birthday parties, family outings, and Boy Scout merit badge training. Contact us to schedule sea kayak lessons for your group/event today.


We created all of our classes with your goals in mind.  Our classes can help you learn to kayak in order to enjoy nature at a relaxed pace, or take you to the challenging waters of Deception Pass.  It is our goal to always focus on the importance of the essentials of sea kayaking so that you can make the most of your sea kayaking experiences. 


Living in Northwest Washington means we have the opportunity to paddle in a world renowned location, and we want you to enjoy learning the skills that will give you a foundation from which to grow and expand your ability to enjoy everything Bellingham Bay, San Juan Islands and greater Puget Sound have to offer.


We are looking forward to paddling with you!
