For those who are just beginning sea kayaking on their own and who would like to earn recognized certification, Avolo Plein Air is the place to do it! You will get the chance to paddle in both exposed and protected areas so you can learn to understand the different characteristics of a water body. The exposed point reaching out into the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the area around Île Plate will give you the opportunity to observe such phenomenas as currents, waves, winds and tides.
By taking courses with us, you will be able to begin sea kayaking on your own more safely, with extensive comprehension of techniques and manoeuvres. Ultimately, you will be equipped to prepare your own excursions, whether you’re heading out for a few hours or a full day. During the sessions, you will practice a variety of recovery and towing manoeuvres to make kayaking safer for you and the people who paddles with you.
The training given by Avolo Plein Air is taught according to Paddle Canada course content, so your certification will be valid from coast to coast.
Paddle Canada recognizes four levels of skill in addition to its Sea kayak skills: Introduction to kayaking course, which is the equivalence of FQCK’s Level 1 course. Paddle Canada’s Level 1 course is equivalent to FQCK’s Level 2 course, and so on.
