Arrrrrrr! Grab your paddles, treasure maps and a swashbuckling sense of adventure for the Academy’s most outrageous aquatic adventure yet! Paddling Pirates is a fun instructional program with a treasure hunting twist. Days will be a blend of paddling lessons aboard Stand Up Paddle Boards and inflatable kayaks at a variety of Telluride’s high-alpine oceans. Sprinkled into our daily workshops will be on-water pirate games, treasure hunts and of course costumes! Our final day will be a pirate beach party where we will fly our Jolly Rodger, enjoy a feast and count all of our acquired treasures!
