A few sprinkles won't scare us away! All programs scheduled will run rain or shine. Should SKC determine that the weather conditions are unsuitable for an upcoming program; we will cancel the class/tour and contact you via cell phone. In the event of lightning or other severe weather conditions, our instructors will make an on-site, last minute determination on whether or not to proceed.

For All Programs you may either bring your own equipment or we'll supply it for you at no extra charge. We do not provide discounts for bringing your own equipment. Clients may bring their own kayaks provided they are at least fourteen feet in length and have bulkheads, sealed hatches and deck lines fore and aft of the cockpit. To provide greater safety for the program participants and assure all participants are on a level playing field, we do not permit sit on top or recreational kayaks. Please contact us if you are unsure as to whether or not your equipment is suitable for one of our programs.
Forms including liability release forms and a confidential medical questionnaire are required for each program. Please complete all paperwork PRIOR to arriving for your lesson or tour.

Paddle-specific clothing is required for all programs. Essentially, dress as if you're going swimming. We'll try and keep you dry, but wearing the right clothes will make for a safer and more comfortable paddling experience. See the paddler's checklist and visit Outdoor Sports Center for assistance with purchasing the right clothing for paddling. Please do not wait until the last minute to purchase your clothing and accessories.
Personal Info is asked of you (height and weight) so that we may properly fit you to your kayak, board, paddle, pfd and spray skirt.
Punctuality and Preparedness are two of our favorite things. It's very important that our programs begin and conclude on time and it's no fun if we have to shove off without you. Please Arrive Having Everything On The Paddler's Checklist Completed And In-Hand 15 Minutes Prior To The Program Start Time.
