THE RESCUE COURSE
This course is aimed at learning how to rescue a paddling friend and self-rescue yourself as well as towing techniques .
We alternate exercises with instructions and practice at a leisurely pace together with an experienced kayak instructor, in a small group where positive encouragement and fun are always in focus.
Your instructor will go through several basic paddling techniques and safety information before you try some simple rescue exercises, which aim to give you confidence in yourself and your kayak.
Our kayak dock is located right in the heart of the city, on Kungsholmen, just a couple of hundred meters from T Centralen, in the Karlberg Canal just below Barnhus Bridge. Here we can teach you kayaking in an excellent accessible and central location! Our kayak equipment is new and in top condition and our kayak instructors are qualified and experienced.
Even though you do not need any previous experience to take this course with us, you should be able to swim to participate.
After completing this course, you will feel confident rescuing your colleague or yourself in case of capsize.
Learn the best techniques for self-rescue, friend rescue and towing.
