Trips are built around our core philosophy of developing independent paddlers.
Build your skills in real-life conditions with multiple days of coaching to accelerate your pace of learning.
Each trip begins with a group discussion of goals and aspirations. In order to maximize learning, the first day on the water is typically a warm-up and skills benchmarking day on accessible whitewater. The remainder of the trip will take the best advantage of the river levels we have and the group learning outcomes. Sometimes that means looking for some rivers with less water and sometimes it means hitting a river with more water.
Our low student-coach ratios allow us to embrace the environment offering challenges that are accessible and fun. Skills might include eddy turns, ferries, surfing, river running strategies, river safety, and rescues.
Each of the whitewater adventure trip destinations offers a range of paddling environments so we can choose the optimal conditions for the group.
