Course Description

Kayaking is a healthy and fun way to enjoy the outdoors together. That's why we're excited to share this family-friendly paddling adventure with you.

In a fun, relaxed environment, our expert instructors will make sure you and your family are comfortable paddling and maneuvering a kayak. Step by step, our instructors will go over safety procedures, basic paddling techniques plus review the best way to kayak with your child.

Afterwards, we'll set out together on a leisurely paddle in calm waters, putting your kayaking skills into practice.

This 90-minute class is a great way to introduce your child to kayaking, build confidence in the water and get the whole family outdoors together. Please join us and experience the joy of kayaking with your little ones.

All necessary paddling equipment is provided.

Note Depending on age and experience, children will either paddle solo or share a seat with a parent. Limited number of tandem kayaks available.


L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion. †Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
