Learn more about whitewater kayaking

On a rafting or kayaking course, you’ll learn the skills you need to navigate rivers using these watercraft. You’ll learn how to paddle, read and assess whitewater, knots and rope management, and what it’s like to lead a small group on the river. Depending on your course, you may use a variety of watercraft, including kayaks, paddle rafts, and oar rigs, but every course will give you opportunities to work on different types of challenges, both physical and mental.
