Other Important Information
IMPORTANT: This class meets at our Bend store location: 805 SW Industrial Way, Suite 6, Bend, OR 9770. Please arrive by 8:15 am. We will utilize this earlier departure time to collect extra equipment you may need to borrow. This will also allow for the maximum amount of on water time. nThis is a mandatory class for our Multi-Day Kayak Tours in the San Juan Islands and a great opportunity for those interested in these trips to get a jump on their open water paddling skills and important safety techniques. We also offer independent and privately instructed roll practice in our outdoor heated pool during the summer and at Juniper Swim & Fitness in the winter. nAfter this class you might be looking for something a little sleeker than a recreational kayak. We have an awesome selection of sea kayaks and touring boats here at Tumalo Creek, and you can demo anything you'd like before you decide to take it home.
