Kayaking 101


Getting started kayaking

These links are provided through American Canoe Association (ACA) and are an excellent resource for getting the most out of your paddling experience through information and training. At Dagger we also share the same goals that emphasize respect for the sport and always recommend training for all paddlers.


Paddling America's waterways can be relaxing, rejuvenating, even exhilarating. But it also comes with responsibility for you, your paddling partners, other resource users, and the environment.

Lessons from a certified ACA Instructor and an ACA Pro School are a perfect way to start. They are educational, fun, informative, and can be completed in a remarkably short time.
