Private classes

These are our customer specific classes that are intended for a paddler who only wants to work on a specific thing.

We are located in Pinellas County Florida.  We are conveniently positioned between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

We offer private sea kayaking lessons for an individual & couples (5 students per class max) from a basic introduction to kayaking to more advanced skills such as Greenland Kayak Rolling.  Each class is unique and customized to your personal goals.  Kayaks, PFD & paddle are not provided.
