If you have ever wanted to learn to kayak but cannot fit our regular classes into your busy schedule, then a kayaking private lesson is for you.  These lessons can be enjoyed as one-on-one instruction, or bring a few friends or family members for a great time on the water.  Private lessons are also great if there's a specific skill you're looking to develop. Our instructors are able to tailor the lesson to exactly what you're looking to learn. At the time of booking you will specify if you would like a lesson on a sit-on top or sit-inside sea kayak. 


Must be at least 8 years old and 65 pounds to be in a single sit-on-top kayak. 

Must be at least 16 years old to be in a sit-inside sea kayak.


Course Fee: $180.00
UCSD/SDSU Student Fee: $120.00

Rates above are for a 2-hour lesson (minimum). Additional hours will incur additional charges.
Additional persons are $20/hour per person, up to 5 participant maximum. 

For lessons for more than 5 participants please see special events.
