Wilderness First Aid Afloat (WFAA)


January 25-25, 2015

The SOLO Wilderness First Aid Afloat course contains all the same information included in the SOLO Wilderness First Aid course with the exception of altitude illness. It also includes additional topics that are of specific interest to boaters, such as sea sickness, marine bites and stings, and some types of injuries that are more common in marine environments. This new program is also slightly different from the regular SOLO WFA course in that topics like sending for help have been adapted to be more applicable to situations that might arise on the water and in a water-based environment. The WFA Afloat meets all requirements of the United States Coast Guard for a Wilderness First Aid Course, and is listed as a approved course and curriculum by the USCG.

———————– More About Us ————————

Sweetwater Kayaks sells kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for the novice paddler, the expedition minded paddler, and everyone in-between. We have put hundreds of paddlers on the water over the last 20 years, and are skilled at matching your size, physical capabilities, and paddling skills with the right kayak , thereby enhancing your comfort, fun, and safety for your style of paddling.

We don’t just sell boats and boards; we are a full service paddle sports store with the best trained staff in the area. Everyone on our staff is a coach and possesses certification from the American Canoe Association (ACA), British Canoe Union (BCU), or both. So whether you are a beginner looking to learn the basics, an intermediate paddler looking to add to or enhance your skills, or a seasoned paddler looking to fine tune your paddling. We can provide you with the training you need.

Our experience in fitting and training comes from the thousands of  hours we’ve paddled on the sea over two decades with thousands of paddles.
