CPR and First Aid Certified Kayak Tour Guides

by | Nov 14, 2022 | Kayaking Safety

At Central Florida Kayaking, we have CPR and first-aid-certified kayak tour guides because your safety is our number one priority. In addition to being CPR and first-aid-certified, our guides have been trained in water rescue techniques. Although it is rare, a kayak can capsize, so having a kayak tour guide trained in water rescue is essential in such a scenario.

Kayak Safety Questions

I Have a Question: Dan asked, “what do you do if your kayak capsizes?”

Cameron’s Answer: It is unlikely your kayak will capsize during a tour. However, if it does, your guide will employ a water rescue technique like the assisted T-rescue and flip your kayak upright on top of theirs, allowing you to safely reenter.
