Your class fee covers instruction, use of our boats, paddles, life jackets (PFDs), spray skirts, and wet suits. Upon registration, please review our “What to Bring to Class” page carefully. It lists both required and optional items for your safety and comfort. It is important that you come to class prepared.
If you already own a sea kayak, sit-inside not sit-on-top, we absolutely encourage you to use it and any other gear you own in our classes, providing it’s in good repair. If we feel your equipment in any way compromises your safety, we’ll request you use gear we provide. To use your kayak on Lake Whatcom or Lake Samish, it must have the Whatcom County invasive species boat inspection sticker. For more information, click here: Whatcom Boat Inspections.
