Stand up paddling & kayaking flatwater basics are quickly and easily learned.

Learning the basics not only shows you the techniques you need to get going but, perhaps more importantly, increases your safety, confidence and enjoyment when out on the water.


Our kayaks and stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) have been specially selected for their excellent combination of stability, performance & comfort. All our kayaks have ultra-large cockpits for extra-easy entry & exit - you don't need to learn, or know how to do, a recovery roll to be safe in our boats.   



Tuck a learn-to-kayak or learn-to-stand up paddle (SUP) session into a one-hour rental.

The first portion of the hour consists of both on-land and on-water instruction that covers the basics you need to get going. Enjoy the remainder of your hour practicing your new paddling skills. 

MIN 1/MAX 5 participants.

Drop-in 'Learn-to' / Rental Combos will be available in July and August, Thursdays and Fridays, between noon & 4PM, at the discretion of RR&P staff - availability depends on the day's reservations and rental volumes. 



Both our Morning Messabouts and Evening Escapes incorporate an introductory paddling session to get beginners to get up and running in the companionship and safety of a social paddling tour. The relaxed structure and easy pace of these 1.5-hour excursions allows for all levels of participation.
