BC 3 Star Kayak White Water Award

BCU 3 Star Kayak White Water Award picture

Successful performance at this level indicates that the paddler can consider themselves intermediate canoeists, as they can now paddle on moving waters.

They can do this in a competent manner as part of a led group and have the knowledge and ability to help the smooth running of a trip while being led down a section of a Grade 2 river. This also can be used as a pre-requisite for the BC level 2-coach course.

This course aims to equip the paddler with the necessary personal paddling and river reading skills in order that they can make appropriate decisions, select the correct skill and carry them out in a moving water environment.

We have a full range of white water kayaks from Pyranha that you borrow if needed.

A full detailed action plan during the course will assist in your personal development after your training course.


  • Ideally be able to swim
  • Evidence of having paddled a White water kayak on Grade 2 white-water
