The remaining time you can paddle in the wavepool, and in the river. Different types of kayaks are available for you to try. This is a great opportunity to try out kayaks in the warm environment of the wave park and have the opportunity to see how it feels to be in waves and moving current.

WHERE: H2Oasis water park
DETAILS: -- Kayaks and all accessories are available to rent at the pool -- You can bring your own whitewater kayak if you want; but it must be clean -- There will be some group and limited one-on-one instruction in boating skills -- You are encouraged to spend most of the evening in whitewater kayaks; more can fit in the pool and they are the way to really build and practice paddling skills -- Cost is $20 for the 2-hour evening (have to confirm that detail). If you paddle the whole sesion, two hours will exhaust most of us. -- This is unlike any other pool experience you have ever had in a regular flat water pool BRING: -- Swim suit or shorts and T-Shirt -- Some people like to wear neoprene socks or old sneakers on their feet (optional) -- Some people like to bring a set of nose plugs; goggles or swim mask (optional; not needed)

    Great fun and an excellent upper body workout. Jim is a patient and careful instructor and we all benefited. I also enjoyed playing on and in water that wasn't frozen solid!!

    It was a very good lesson. The wave pool is kind of scary.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
