Prerequisites: Anyone who can swim well enough to be comfortable putting their head underwater and able to swim the crawl stroke or breaststroke without a buoyancy aid can take this class, and yes everyone wears PFDs (life jackets) while on the water — but you still need basic swimming skills. Minimum age–sixteen (for younger people, see our FK101 Beginning Family Class or call us about a Private Family Kayaking Lesson). If you have an inflatable kayak please check with Kayak Academy to determine if it is acceptable to use in the class.
