Canoe Courses

Improving your canoeing skills is one of the best ways to increase your enjoyment and safety on the river. I combine the latest Paddle Canada canoeing techniques with my 50+ years of canoeing experience to ensure our course will boost your canoeing skills and enthusiasm.

Moving water is also referred to as white water, either way it is a dynamic learning experience. You’ll start off on flat water so we can refine your basic techniques. I pride myself on being able to accurately pinpoint where your manoeuvres are breaking down and how you need to adjust your techniques for success in moving water. I prefer to teach whitewater to participants in either a tandem white water canoe or solo playboat.

Courses are available from 1 to 4 days long and usually take place in the Ottawa area May through September.
