Why Learn to Paddle?

The world of paddlesports provides a dynamic mode of travel to experience our region’s waterways. Standup paddleboarding, kayaking, and canoeing are excellent ways to explore our rivers, lakes, wetlands, and environments throughout the Finger Lakes region.

At Paddle-N-More, we encourage individuals to take lessons because we want to teach participants to be confident and competent paddlers. This increases the “fun-factor” of paddle-sports. Through our clinics, participants will learn the proper technique and skills necessary to succeed, be safe, and have fun while on the water. 

At Paddle-N-More, we are Stewards of Safety!

Paddle-N-More’s instructors are trained and certified as American Canoe Association (ACA) canoe, kayak, and/or standup paddleboard instructors. In addition to possessing the skills to demonstrate proper technique, these certifications mean that all instructors are trained in a wide range of teaching and communication methods so that, through Paddle-N-More’s lessons, participants will gain the confidence and skills for kayaking, canoeing and standup paddleboarding.

All lessons are out of our Myers Park location only.

At Paddle-N-More, we want our customers to not only take a lesson, but come back and practice!  To do this, we offer one complimentary 2-hour rental to each individual who takes a lesson to get in practice.  Because, we know, at PNM, to become an excellent paddler, experience and time on the water are important to getting to the next level! You MUST take a lesson to take advantage of this offer.


Spaces are limited to 6 participants per clinic. Payment must be received 24-hours in advance to reserve a spot.
All lessons include a kayak, canoe or paddleboard and necessary gear. There is a discounted price for those who have their own kayak, canoe, or paddleboard.

Reguarly Scheduled Group Lessons are $55 for 2 hours which includes a complimentary rental so you can come back and practice! Lesson vouchers can only be used by those who take a lesson with one of our ACA instructors.


Private lessons are by appointment only. Private one-on-one lessons are $95 per person for a lesson in kayaking, standup paddleboarding, and canoeing. For a private group lesson with more than three participants, it is regular price at $65 per person. Contact jennifer@paddle-n-more.com to schedule your private one-on-one or group lesson. 

Cancellation Policy

One person’s perfect day on the water may be too hot for somebody else and too cold for the next person. As a rental company, last-minute cancellations are very costly. At the same time, we understand that things come up and we don’t feel it is right for you to lose your entire rental fee if you have to reschedule.

Our Cancellation Policy is simple and strict, but fair.

If you cancel with 24 hours or more notice you will receive a 100% refund. No shows and cancellations within 24 hours of the reservation or event, for any reason, are subject to full reservation cost. We do not allow cancellations for less than ideal weather. If the weather is bad due to high winds, lightning, heavy rain, storms in the area, unsafe conditions we will call you to cancel or move your reservation. Cancellations made by our staff due to weather will receive a full refund. We reserve the right to cancel any rental or lesson at any time due to extreme conditions deemed unsafe.

Please note – if you arrive at your reservation late, this counts toward your time on the water. We cannot just extend times due to the equipment being reserved throughout the day. There are fees associated with returning equipment outside of the reservation time.
