Beginner Canoe

July 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Participants take a break on a canoe trip

Beginner Canoe

Can you canoe?? Learn how with instructions from a Kayak Pittsburgh Excursionist. You’ll learn all about canoe safety, gear, and technique, then you’ll hit the water to practice your new skills. As this is a beginner course, you’ll learn to paddle a canoe with two people inside. 

*We encourage you to sign up with a friend so you can learn to canoe together. If you would like to attend solo, you may be matched with another solo participant. 

Trip Leader: Our Kayak Pittsburgh Excursionists are trained to instruct participants to use all different types of watercraft! The leaders on this outing will have plenty on canoe experience and will be able to ensure you learn all there is to know about canoeing.

Activity level: Beginner – no experience required! 

What to Bring: While canoeing is not necessarily a “get wet” sport, you might get dripped on or splashed occasionally. It is best to wear clothes that dry quickly. Wear comfortable shoes that could potentially get wet.  

Distance: Since this is a beginner course, we may not make it very far on the lake, but participants can plan to be on the water for roughly an hour. 

Starting Location: We’ll launch from our Kayak Pittsburgh North Park location. The google maps link is as follows:

Ticket Sales Close: Ticket sales will close 24 hours before the program starts.

Additional Info: 

Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time to ensure that the trip gets underway on time. Dress for the weather (Venture Outdoors trips proceed rain or shine!), bring water and wear comfortable closed toe shoes. By purchasing a ticket, you acknowledge that you are physically able to undertake the activity described above.
