Hanging out, watching the tide come in.
Sunday Instructional Tour
This is a fun paddle for those who have some safety and paddling training behind them and would like to gain experience on the ocean. It is an opportunity to become familiar with some of the best places to paddle around Victoria. At the same time, you will gain some understanding of tide and currents, while improving your strokes and honing your skills. Typically, we paddle for an hour or two, then find a great place to stop for lunch. A key part of our plan is finding a different route back, when possible.
Launching at The Lodge at Weir Beach
Our guides are happy to answer questions and provide instruction wherever your interest lies. We go to different places each week, rotating through nine launch sites. While the launch spots may be repeated, routes taken will vary according to conditions. Come out and meet other paddlers and enjoy the special places around Victoria.
