A half to full day course that is set according to your schedule.  We can help you with whitewater kayak, flatwater or recreational kayak, and canoeing!

This course is a wonderful introduction for the beginner and novice paddlers, but can be set up for more advanced paddlers to improve your paddling skills.

We provide the necessary skills and practice to help you paddle safely and efficiently.

You will gain the skills to: enter and exit your kayak safely, use correct paddle strokes, surf, understand paddling terminology, and the ability to negotiate basic river features. You will learn to “read” the river, and be exposed to basic water safety.

The full day course will give you more time to practice these important skills, and allow you to play on more of the San Marcos River’s beautiful drops! This course also includes lunch!
