With two great learning environments at your fingertips, the opportunity to learn or even improve your paddleboarding skills is a dream come true. Our Paddle Canada certified instructors in Basic Flatwater are passionate about two things: the water and the whales. Come and benefit from their experience and their motivation to introduce you to a sport with a growing popularity.
