Can I take your class or come on a trip if I can't swim?

Absolutely!  We require everyone to wear a PFD / life jacket at all times when near the water, and we are trained to keep you safe.  If you are comfortable with the idea that you will be getting wet, and could possibly end up floating in a lake or down the river in your life jacket, we will have you loving kayaking by the end of your class / trip!

Are your trips and classes truly safe for children?

If your child is comfortable around water, they are going to love kayaking.  Our classes on the river are limited to 15 years or older, but our guided trips are great for all ages.
