This paddle is geared towards the paddler who has some previous paddle experience. If you are not quite comfortable yet with venturing into the water alone, or would like to add to your repertoire of paddle strokes this is the class for you. This class will reinforce the importance of safety and stability while getting into and out of the canoe or kayak as well as cover a few more advanced paddle strokes so you can learn to better control the course of your vessel while maneuvering in the current of the Bayou Vermilion. For this paddle trip a motorized safety vessel will be following the group to provide added security. The cost is $12 per person; this covers our vessel fee, paddle guide/instructor fee, and our American Canoe Association insurance fees. Please arrive at Vermilionville (300 Fisher Road, Lafayette, LA 70508) for 8:00 am.
