Testimonials

​I went on a Kayaking Skills weekend and it was Fantastic! Ann was fantastic at teaching our group everything from safety skills, different paddling techniques depending on the currents and what we were trying to achieve, and my favourite rescues! Knowing that I could save myself or another person makes me feel confident in heading out on a longer multi-day trip.
Thank you Ann you really are a fantastic teacher! You have a way of explaining technical instructions in a way that makes sense, and also you are very supportive and kind.
If your thinking of learning kayaking skills Ann is the lady to follow.

I really enjoyed this course. I am totally new to kayaking, and this course exceeded my expectations. It provided a plethora of information beyond "packing". Information on the type of equipment, how to pack the equipment and finally how to pack it into my kayak was well presented and seemed to me pertinent to all experience levels. I know I won't remember everything, but my notes will help. Can't wait to get out there and enjoy our natural country again.

Thanks GF

We really enjoyed the sunset paddle in Barrie last night with Mike and Ann.  They were extremely knowledgeable, safety conscious and friendly to our group of five participants.  Whilst we have some experience of kayaking we came away with some very useful tips to improve our skills.
As a result we have now signed up to take your Level 1 course in August.

​The course with Ann and Mike was the best time I have had, in a kayak. Their teaching techniques and skill level
instilled confidence. Their willingness to listen and answer all questions was refreshing. I look forward to the next time.

I attended Happy Paddling's navigation course recently. Mike and Ann are down to earth and knowledgeable people with a passion for all things paddling. Our instructor Barry kept the information interesting and easy to understand. Communication about the course details was excellent and timely. Very much enjoyed my day ! Will definitely plan to do more with Happy Paddling.  Ian
