Canoe and paddling Lessons

David Wooldridge and his son Jack. Jack is showing his dad how to "really" paddle!

Here you will find all the different styles of paddling and the lessons that go with them! Below are all the canoeing disciplines we can help you master!

We offer in-house Ridge Canadian Canoe Certificates for all our Canoe courses, these are included in your course package. These are specifically for participation and completion of the course, where participants are looking to focus more on the skills gained, and do not need a particular certification for work purposes.

If participants would prefer a Paddle Canada Certificate, we do offer those certificates also for an additional $15 plus tax  per person fee. This certificate is geared more towards those needing a specific certification for work purposes. 

Each course is the same regardles of certification given, however our normal Ridge programs include a few extra skills the Paddle Canada level does not. 

Please notify our office if you would prefer a Paddle Canada certificate.

Hear what folks are saying!

I was very impressed with all the personnel at RIDGE Wilderness Adventures. They took time to teach all of our students no matter what level of outdoor exerience each child had. At the end of the day everyone was more confident on the water. The happy smiling faces all round was the proof in the pudding! A huge thanks to Dave and Crew. We will definitely come again.
