Skill Level Rating
based on BCU star awards

Level I programs are generally scheduled for mornings or days with little tidal movement, or in protected lakes or creeks. No experience necessary.

Level II tours may experience light wind (8kts), small waves (1'), or moderate current (1kt). Level 2 tours build on the basics introduced at level 1. Calm capsize and reentry experience is required.

Level III programs take advantage of afternoon wind (15kts, waves 2-3') or greater tidal action (2kts).

Level IV programs require well-refined paddling skills as they venture into surf, strong wind, or dramatic current. They may require or build navigation skills, and contain strong elements of group interdependence.
