Each water session is one on one to maximize instruction time and assess the individual accurately. Each student should be familiar with the "safety procedures and guidelines" before commencement of any class (see safety tab). Once the basics are learned, mastered, and evaluated, we proceed to the water based instruction with the assistance of a Personal Water Craft as soon as possible. We recommend that ground classes be one on one as well, to maximize each students time and learning. However, in special circumstances we will consider taking up to three ground students in one class, though the price per person remains the same.
