Please register online now to secure your spot. You can delay paying until one week before the course date; a payment reminder email will be sent at that time.  If you decide not to take the course please cancel your reservation as space is limited.

Note that dates may change to ensure safe water levels.

Course-specific details will be sent by the instructor one week before the course.  A dry suit is the preferred clothing and we can provide a list of rental options.
