Kayaking FAQs

If you have more questions or concerns, please contact us

We offer well-maintained equipment, easy instruction, and a wide variety of kayak tours ranging from half-day to full-day trips. We also offer combo trips that include horseback riding, mountain biking, and more.  Guided river kayak trips are appropriate for people with intermediate river kayaking skills or better.

If you do not meet the minimum skills requirement, then a private river kayaking lesson is in order.  Our private river kayaking lessons last for 1 – 3 hours and will be customized to fit your skill level and expectations.

For safety and comfort during casual river kayaking, we use and recommend inflatable kayaks (a.k.a. I.K.’s or duckies) that are whitewater rated.  For your selection, we offer a variety of makes and styles of inflatable kayaks, including Aire, Tributary and Vanguard.
