What Skill Level?

Fill in the blank: "I enjoy being out front on Class __ rivers that I've run before." You have just chosen which river level to join.

Our goal is to provide you with the best paddling vacation you've ever had. That means helping you paddle your best with a smile on your face. Our itineraries are designed for kayakers currently paddling at these skill levels. All itineraries include continuous rivers and creeks. Most of the runs we do are remote without road access. This is not the time to push your level. Being the teachers that we are, we offer tips to refine river strategies, technique and play skills. However, these are not classes to prepare folks for the skill level indicated. Learn more about our instructional programs.

"Thanks you very much! That trip was by far the best commercial trip I've been on. It was a lot more like boating with a group of my best paddling friends. I recognize that a lot of thought and effort went into preparation for the trip, and that leadership on the rivers showed not only extremely high paddling and river-running skills but also excellent assessment and
judgment of people's interests, needs and capabilities."

- Dick Sisson, WA
