River Rescue Courses

river rescue canoeing course

Knowing how to swim a rapid is as important as knowing how to paddle one.

Finally, a rescue course designed for river canoeists!

These invaluable courses will have you out of the canoe as much as in it, throwing ropes, swimming rapids, re-entering canoes, and playing with different ways to set safety for difficult rapids. Even if you’ve learned some of these techniques before, the practice is priceless. This is a must-have course for anyone planning their own river trip.


Course Tuition – $310

Includes 1 evening dryland session on the eve before the course, 2 days of on (and in) the water instruction and practice, and transportation from Vernon, BC.
