A Relaxing Kayak Adventure

While West Virginia is known for whitewater rafting adventures, there are also incredible flatwater experiences to explore!  This trip is both scenic and adventurous! You’ll spend 3 hours on the water, exploring calm water on the New River, Hawk’s Nest Lake, or the caves and coves of Summersville Lake. Your guide will lead the way, instructing you on how to steer your kayak and paddle efficiently on the calm water. You’ll be seated on a sit on top kayak and experience the beauty of West Virginia.

Dress for the weather, we run this trip rain or shine, so bring your raincoat if the weather calls for it! You’ll also have opportunities to swim, so wear clothing for swimming!

Consider renting a wetsuit and splash jacket in the spring or fall.
