There are quite a few companies offering Paddle Canada Level 2 at a similar price. For example, locally, there is Ecomarine, Deep Cove Canoe & Kayak Centre, & BC Kayak Centre. On Vancouver I. there is SKILS. Most courses will courses involve taking a ferry. Besides price, you should consider the quality of the instruction. SKABC has offered the course in the past but not this year. The main reason is lack of instructors with current Paddle Canada certification, which is an annual expense.
