Intro to Whitewater Kayaking 

"Oh my god! that was awesome!" you yell at the bottom of your first rapid loving the wild feeling of the waves and water splashing your face as you avoid the rocks. Sitting in a calm pool below the rapid, your instructor gives you a "paddle high-five," just as excited for you as you are. You watch your new friends come down the same rapid, smiling as they get bucked and splashed before they end up next to you.
No experience? No problem - trips are geared for complete beginners. Our staff will teach you the basics in the indoor pool first, then on moving water and guide you down exciting beginner friendly rapids.

Intermediate+ Paddlers
If you have solid kayak skills and want to advance, we can tailor this trip to your ability level. By making hard moves on easy water, you can dial your skills with lower consequence than trying to make easy moves on hard water. Or, depending on the river, you'll get to run a different section.
Trip includes equipment, transportation, and instruction.

No experience needed. Mandatory pre-trip meeting on Thursdays (early evening) before the trip & 1 kayak pool session required.
