Kayaking 101

This lesson will get you started with safe kayaking practices. This introductory course includes all kayaking gear, skilled instruction and lunch on river day.

Anyone can do this and it's so rewarding!

It does not matter what skill level you are or what type of kayaking you want to do, this will give you the basics that can be used in all disciplines.

We will cover many important topics to ensure you get off to a great start; topics include the wet exit, power stroke, sweep stroke, boat knowledge, T-rescue, introduction to the roll and more.

The class is three sessions and the cost is $200 per person

Tuesday    7pm-9pm        Mineral Palace Pool

Thursday  7pm-9pm         Mineral Palace Pool

Saturday   10am-finish      Reservoir to Nature Center

The river portion of the trip is a scenic route from the base of the Dam to the Pueblo Nature and Raptor Center, and it will allow you to put what you have learned to practice! You do need to bring a swim suit, nose plug (optional), water, quick drying layers and dress for the weather. Any other questions? Just give us a call.

Refine your Roll

If you already have the basics down but just need to fix and tweak some techniques, we have classes for you too.
Not all of us can be perfect, so getting flipped in your boat is inevitable. If you feel your roll needs improvement or you are starting to learn it from scratch this lesson will teach you how to get your head back above water without having to swim.

The session takes place in the safe environment of a pool for 2 hours for only $50.

The pool may not always be available so make sure to schedule ahead.If the pool is not available, we have other options.
