Whitewater Trips

All our adventure whitewater kayak trips are built around our core philosophy of developing independent paddlers.  If you want to build your skills in real life conditions you’ll find that adventure trips are the best way to do it.  You can’t beat multiple days of coaching in real world environments to accelerate your pace of learning.

Each trip begins with a group discussion of goals and aspirations.  The first day on the water is typically a warm up  and skills benchmarking day on some easier whitewater.  The remainder of the trip will take best advantage of the river levels we have.  Sometimes that means looking for some rivers with less water and sometimes it means hitting a river with more water.  Each of the whitewater adventure trip destinations we have chosen offer a range of paddling environments so we can almost always find the optimal conditions for the group.
