Private Kayak Lessons

There’s nothing like One on One Kayak Instruction to quickly improve your kayak skills & efficiency. Over the years we have had the privilege of teaching Private Kayak Lessons to paddlers from across the country & even around the world. Take advantage of our expertise to give you positive constructive feedback and skills analysis to help you achieve your kayaking goals.

Note: Private Kayak Lessons are normally run on Thursday’s between 10 am & 3 pm on a date that is mutually convenient to both instructor & student(s). Courses run as scheduled rain or shine!

“Purchasing my kayak from Frontenac Outfitters and then returning for my Private Kayak Lessons was the perfect way for me. I could learn what I wanted in a comfortable environment at my own pace.”
– Lisa Charbonneau- 1000 Islands
