Our adventures range from first-time recreational lessons to sessions that fine-tune your existing skills. Space is limited to 8 participants per trip.

We will spend our time enjoying the silent sport of kayaking while exploring shorelines and scenery in a new and exciting way. The program is designed for all skill levels.
