This year we are highlighting a number of programs for your interest. Our Programs are listed both by Program as well as by Date.
Paddle Canada Certification Courses:
Sea Kayak Skills Certification Courses Levels 2 – 4
Instructor Certification courses offered include Basic through to Level 2.
Instructor Mentorships are available upon request.
Private Clinics are available for Skills (paddle strokes), Rescues & Re-Entries. Check out our new Covid-19 creation called the “Gilholm Assisted Re-entry“.
Our primary tour this year is to be the Yukon River Expedition taking place June 27th – July 11th, 2021. This will take you through Canadiana history from Whitehorse to Dawson City. Take a tour of the S.S. Yukon; you will paddle Lake Lebarge made famous by Robert Service’s poetry; view the shipwreck of the A.J. Goddard; walk around Carstairs; become familiar with Fort Selkirk; and, finally explore the historic city of Dawson. You will have travelled 740 km. in 12 days – feeling the might of the Yukon River’s 5 knot current sweeping you north all the while. This is a trip not to be missed!
Local tours for 2021 include the beautiful west coast destinations of God’s Pocket, Deer Group, Clayquot Sound & Johnstone Strait. If you have a date and location in mind give me a call and we can see how to schedule it for you.
Have a look at what we are offering this year. If something catches your interest I would love to have you join us. Please contact me if you have any queries. Info sheets are available for each course, clinic and tour upon request. Mike Gilbert
