Flatwater Kayaking FAQs

Guide Information

We provide kayaking guides with every trip.

What's Provided

We provide a guide, transportation to and from the water, your kayak, paddle and PFD.

What to Bring

Dress for the weather. You should wear a swimsuit and shorts at the very minimum, and bring more if the weather is going to be cooler. You will get wet in this class, so keep that in mind when you pick your clothes. Synthetic material works best. We also recommend a raincoat if the weather looks like it might go that direction—even when wet, the coat will help you stay warm. Also, bring sunscreen and sun glasses. In the spring and fall, consider renting a wetsuit and splash jacket.

Requirements & Restrictions
