What better place to go sunset kayaking than Channel Islands Harbor? With the beautiful sights of the islands and the occasional dolphin sighting, this is a trip you do not want to miss. Arrive early and meet everyone before we head out, then layer up and get on the water as the day turns to night.
*Due to the nature of this trip we highly encourage you to participate in at least one Open Use Kayaking class before participating.
Kayaking 101: Introduction to Kayaking
Registration Starts January 20th
Channel Islands Harbor with its open space and sheltered waters is the perfect place to experience kayaking. With our sit-inside kayaks, participants will soon realize just how stable, fast and fun kayaking can be as they glide through the water. They will learn topics such as launching/landing, safe boat handling, parts of the kayak, being physically fit, equipment essentials, paddle strokes, and rescue techniques. With their new-found knowledge and confidence, participants will be paddling out into the ocean if the conditions permit. The course will also break down the fundamental strokes to become more efficient while introducing more advanced strokes and braces.
