  • I feel like I took away from the course what I was hoping I would take away. The small student-instructor ratio helped a lot in that not only did we have almost one-on-one instructions, but it also provided us with considerably more practice time while running the rapids. Thumbs up for all three instructors! Sven Hafemeister, StudentMoving Water Canoe Skills Intermediate Tandem
