The Ottawa River provides the perfect venue for learning how to whitewater kayak. With its deep, warm waters and endless channels, there is a fun adventure for everyone.

Our Beginner Kayak Program is perfect for jump-starting your paddling career. This can also be used as a great opportunity to brush up on your skills if you’ve been away for a while. Whatever the case, this program is designed for fun all while enforcing a strong base of fundamental skills.

Beginners and novices can choose to spend 2, 3, or 5 days progressing at a comfortable pace from flatwater strokes and concepts to running class 1-3 whitewater.

Teens are welcome for our 2, 3, and 5-day programs when accompanied by an adult 18+.
