What we're about

Our group is for people who are interested in learning how to kayak but just do not know where to start.  And for people who have a little experience but want to improve and get on the water more.
No boat? No problem, we have them. All necessary equipment is part of our package, We offer classes taught by American Canoe Association (ACA) certified instructors with an emphasis on having fun while staying safe. Our sessions are not in a class room but are taught under the trees and on the river in your own personal floating work station. (a kayak of course)
We also guide fun adventure trips on southern water ways.  All trips are lead by certified guides.
There is no age limitation on this sport, people are kayaking across the country and around the world from age 4 to 80! We will also be offering guided trips on various rivers throughout the year for folks who do not have boats or who just do not feel ready to paddle on their own.
Thank you,

These are a few remarks from past students:

"This beginning class is essential for anyone who is serious about kayaking safety and proper technique. Very informative and knowledgeable instruction and a great day as well. ”

“ Starts with basic critical information and the class built upon that as we moved downstream. Although what we did might not be a big deal for experienced kayakers, for someone who is just learning like myself it was perfect. The instructor as well as his assistants were very friendly, answered all questions in an inviting way and coached us all along the way. They were not afraid to speak up if they observed us doing something that needed improvement, but encouraged us to succeed. Having worked in the healthcare industry for many years I have received much training. This team has a great approach. ”

“ John is an amazing instructor. His stories are highly entertaining and very educational. It's all about safety with him and he teaches so many valuable things that you absolutely have to know in order to safely be on the water. I'll most. likely take his class for a third or even fourth time because they are so excellent! ”
