A big thank you to Yukan Canoe and all its team for making such great courses happening! I did the Intro in moving waters this weekend and I really enjoyed it. I loved the flow of the course, the opportunities to get familiar with moving waters in a boat and in the water, and the great guidance from a very skilled instructor. It was just such an awesome experience. Since then, I feel like I am surfing on this wave we missed. I am so grateful. Thank you Yukan Canoe and thank Natalie for your touch, making it fun and easing the challenge through your support and guidance. We did it!

I just wanted to say how wonderful of an experience we had last weekend doing the intro course. The teaching by Nesha was on point - the explanations were always super clear and helpful. I felt 100% safe at all times, even at the jaws! Not only have I learned a whole lot, but I had a blast on the water at the different locations. I will definitely recommend Yukan canoe to others!

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my course this past weekend. Lauren is an amazing instructor - she was very clear and skilled in her instruction, patient, kind, and fun. I applaud you for being able to carry on the courses in the midst of Covid and appreciate all the extra effort and work this must be for you and all your staff. Thank you!

Hi Trevor! Ron and I really enjoyed the paddling course last night. You are a wonderful teacher and we came away with more confidence and ready to canoe with the wind. Thanks again.

I just wanted to say how incredibly rewarding an experience it was to do the intro to moving water course with your company. Nesha (and Mave) were absolutely incredible. I can't say enough about how enjoyable it was and knowledgeable your guides were. It was a perfect course, perfect progression, and perfection execution. I have absolutely no constructive critique, because there was nothing I would change. I would highly recommend it and so pleased we did it!

Please send my thanks to Haley and Trevor for the recent solo canoe course. What a great training company----I loved the instruction/support as well as the layout and scaffolding of skills throughout the sessions. I've taken other paddle course before (other companies in YT) and they don't compare to the quality of this training. Honestly!!! I was super impressed...and I did the jaws! yeahhhhhh! I don't think I would have felt comfortable doing that if the course hadn't been so thorough. It completely built my confidence on the water, especially knowing that I have major anxiety! That's saying something.... 🙂

I took my first course with Trevor and Yukan Canoe back in 2014, and have continued to build my competence and... confidence by taking more courses over the years.I have done two courses with Yukan Canoe this year and have really enjoyed both of them. I took Intro to Solo Playboating, and appreciated Julia's instruction, encouragement and useful feedback. The course was fun, responded to our needs as learners, and all of the participants of the course seemed to leave feeling more confident in their abilities. I look forward to practicing my skills and taking the Intermediate Solo Playboating course next year.This past weekend, I participated in a Swift Water Rescue course taught by Trevor and Lauren. The instruction was excellent, with lots of opportunities for practice and fun. A highlight for me from the course was participating in swimming drills, and refreshing my knowledge of rope work.Thanks to Trevor and his team of instructors for helping me build the knowledge and skills I need to get out and safely enjoy the beautiful rivers that flow throughout the Yukon.read more

I took the Level 1 canoe course here in June 2020. It is a fantastic course. You don't need canoeing experience to take... it, but most people in my group had some, and the course is also a great refresher for anyone who wants to practice steering, eddy turns, front ferries, and basic self-rescue. It starts on a small lake (Ear Lake), and the last day is on the Takhini River (including the Rock Garden and Jaws). Haley taught my group and she was one of the best instructors I have ever had for an outdoor course. She was kind, knowledgeable, calm, and fun. I highly recommend this course!read more
