1 Day Navigation Course
Getting lost or confused about your location can be worrying even for experienced kayakers. This course is for any kayaker, expert or novice looking to improve or gain navigation skills whilst kayaking.
Our course is different because it includes both a theory session (classroom based) and a practical paddling session where your news skills can be tested on the water. You’ll practice and complete navigating exercises from the deck of a kayak not the beach or wheel house!
We cover all aspects of Sea Kayak navigation; piloting, reading nautical charts and maps, identifying hazards, checkpoints (fixes), hand railing, backstops and finally ‘Ded’ reckoning (navigation in poor or no visibility).
$90 + GST Price includes Blue Dogs Navigation Kit (worth $40)
Kayak, safety gear and wet suit included, Dry suits are available to rent for $20
Other dates are February 25th | March 9th, 21st | April 11th
