Welcome to seakayakinstructor.com

Hey, you found my site! Nice work.

My name is David Johnston and I’m a Paddle Canada sea kayak instructor living in Peterborough, Ontario.

I’ve been teaching people how to sea kayak for 23 years and just love it. I generally teach more intermediate/advanced courses but my real passion is teaching instructor courses so teaching others how to teach and work with adults.
