ABOUT THIS COURSE

If you are new to paddle sports, new to packrafting, new to the river and/or have never had formal paddling training before, our basic packrafting course is for you. It is designed to take those with minimal experience and give the foundational skills necessary to make reasonable decisions and understand craft mechanics and maneuverability. Our basic packrafting course starts with fundamentals: boat inflation, outfitting, personalizing your fit, paddles, paddle strokes and self-rescue. We will spend a good amount of time in and out of our boats as we travel down river each day working on training objectives while we paddle class II+ – III- water.
