Course Description

Improve your paddling efficiency, ability and confidence in this full-day course – the perfect follow-up to our Introduction to Sea Kayaking. Offered in the natural beauty and relaxed seaside surroundings of Casco Bay, this information-packed day of instruction will prepare you for more ambitious kayaking adventures.

In a small-class environment, our experts will teach you edging, bracing and sculling techniques. You'll master the basic body mechanics of advanced paddling strokes, and fine-tune your boat handling skills, including learning draw strokes to move your kayak side to side. By the end of this course you will have gained an enhanced awareness of how your boat, paddle and body work together efficiently.

On-site video analysis and review of your technique by our instructors will help you practice and refine every skill.

All necessary paddling equipment is provided.

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.

The July Intermediate Sea Kayaking Course was excellent. Exceeded our expectations. Kevin and Steve were impressive with the wealth of knowledge they were eager to share. Our class had 3 participants with much individual attention. Will definitely sign up again for the next level.
