Portland Paddle offers kayak classes for all skill levels, from complete beginners to experienced paddlers who'd like to master a roll or learn to surf a kayak. All courses are taught by American Canoe Association-certified instructors who are also Registered Maine Guides. 

Casco Bay is a great place to learn to SUP. Take a beginner lesson with one of our expert instructors.

Our expert instructors are available for private lessons. Our kayaking and SUP instructors are qualified to teach lessons covering a wide range of paddling knowledge -- from advanced skills like surfing and seamanship to more basic skills like how to choose the right vessel and how to turn your boat or board effectively. We love sharing our knowledge of paddling and working individually with students to progress their skills. 

We offer two SUP yoga group classes every week & private classes by request through a partnership with several local yoga studios. There's nothing else like doing yoga on the water!
