Rescue Practice

This 8 hour course will cover rescue scenarios common on Interior Alaska lakes and rivers. You will practice self-rescue including defensive and offensive swimming, capsized boat rescue and rescuing each other. You will learn and practice appropriate throw rope use as well. This course should not be confused with a swift water rescue class; we will not be practicing in big water or rapids.
Drysuits are required. If you need to use one of our drysuits there is an additional $10.00 equipment fee.
Location: Olnes Pond State Park and Whitefish Campground State Park.
Time: Class starts at Olnes Pond at 9:00 am and ends at Whitefish Campground at 5:00 pm.
At this time no shuttles will be provided due to COVID 19. If protocols change and make joint shuttles possible we will let you know before class
Class Size: Minimum 5 participants and Maximum 10 participants.
Venues are subject to change based on venue and weather conditions.
