Lessons & Associations

Look for instructors that are highly experienced and certified with the American Canoe Association and the American Whitewater Affiliation. This mean they're up on the latest safety issues. If you can't easily find a kayaking club, check at local YMCAs and YWCAs. Many clubs used the Y's pools for instruction and practice.
