Our whitewater kayak instruction programs are designed for everyone — from beginners who have never before sat in a boat to experienced kayakers who are ready to level up their paddling. Our expert instructors work with students beginning with paddling fundamentals and how to effectively maneuver a whitewater kayak to advanced skills and technique. There is also a focus on river safety and rescue, hydrodynamics, aka “reading the river” and how to make good decisions on the water. We offer whitewater kayak instruction in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Chile. Our multi-day clinics include professional instruction, camping and all the gear you’ll need to go kayaking. Class size is limited to ensure individual attention.
