Sea Kayaking Skills Course

Sea Kayaking Skills Course in Patagonia, Bariloche
Each year since 2015, we run sea kayaking courses in different lakes of the Patagonian Andes, mainly in Bariloche, San Martin de los Andes and Neuquén areas. The courses are run in Spring and Summer months when conditions are better for the practices.
This is a intensive practical course based on different paddling schools curriculum that we learned working and guiding. The main structure is based on A.C.A.
