B.C. Advanced Sea Kayak Leader Award

This course demonstrates a candidate has entered the top level of performance, involving a high level of personal skill, leadership ability, and judgement to lead groups of paddlers with a range of experience on advanced tidal waters.

The award is intended for paddlers who journey on the sea in areas where tidal races, headlands, open crossings, swell, and challenging coastlines will be encountered. The award should be accessible to all those people who journey on the sea on a regular basis and should not be seen as the preserve of a few elite performers.
