Level I programs are generally
scheduled for mornings or days with little tidal movement, or
in protected lakes or creeks. No experience necessary.
Level II tours may experience light
wind (8kts), small waves (1'), or moderate current (1kt).
Level 2 tours build on the basics introduced at level 1. Calm
capsize and reentry experience is required.
Level III programs take advantage
of afternoon wind (15kts, waves 2-3') or greater tidal action
Level IV programs require well-refined
paddling skills as they venture into surf, strong wind, or dramatic
current. They may require or build navigation skills, and
contain strong elements of group interdependence.
