Kayaking

For the most adventurous river traveler, recommended for age 10 years and up, advanced skill involved. Average river trip by kayak is 3 to 5 hours long (10-15 miles), paddling leisurely but consistently. Sit-in and touring kayak styles are available. Kayaks offer the ability to be on the river with a group of people but yet afford the opportunity to be an individual. when the group decides to continue down stream, you can play around in your favorite eddy or rapid until you opt to catch up. It is a great way to see the river or just be out for some exercise in the sun.

Double Kayaks:
Tandem or Double Kayaks are relatively new to our fleet. These kayaks offer the same lower center of gravity as all the other kayaks. They allow people to sit inside of the boat as opposed to sitting high and up on the boat, as in a canoe. Taking a tandem allows people to enjoy the river together. It also allows an inexperienced person to go with someone else to "learn the ropes" and feel comfortable, before getting their feet wet themselves (so to speak).
