Adult Class Description:

[Note: Registration for the May 9th Adult Class has closed.]

Our primary focus is youth instruction, but now and then we hold special adult classes as well (they're basically fundraisers), usually towards the latter-half of the summer. To learn about future adult classes, send us an e-mail so you're on the list.

  • Adult classes are nominally for adults 18 and older (there's wiggle room though).
  • Adult classes are one day long, on Saturday, 9:00AM to 4:00PM with an hour break for lunch.
  • Adult class tuition is $100 per person (they are, in effect, fundraisers to subsidize the youth classes).
  • Adult classes meet on Norway Point, either in or near the Juneau Yacht Club. Map.
  • Adult students wear drysuits provided by JYS while on the water. A swim test and a capsize drill will take place at the start of class. Be sure to review Gear Requirements.
  • If you have a group of interested people, we can work to schedule you a ''private'' adult class. In the past, we've done all-ladies classes, groups of co-workers, etc.
