Coastal Kayak is one of only a handful of American Canoe Association Pro Schools in the nation! Coastal Kayak’s located in what is considered by many as one of the best teaching locations on the East Coast! Only two miles north of Ocean City, Maryland and 3 miles south of Bethany Beach, Delaware we are located directly on the water of Little Assawoman Bay which has an average depth of less than 4 feet. The many coves and sheltered areas of the small bay make it perfect for our beginner and intermediate paddling classes and the open area in the middle of the bay is perfect for sailing. Directly across the street – a three minute walk – is the Atlantic Ocean. This is an excellent location for some of our more advanced classes such as our surf launch and landing clinics, our surfing classes, etc. There is also a bath house with hot showers and a food concession. Regardless of the weather, we can almost always find conditions suitable for the class at hand. This includes our advanced courses where we have access to two of the most varied inlets on the east coast offering all levels of conditions from mild to intense, allowing our instructors to find the perfect environment for you to learn and grow.
