Kayaking

Half-Day Whitewater Kayaking Sampler

Kayak 1 Kayak 3

West Virginia's New River has some of the best kayaking in the eastern United States. We offer beginner and intermediate lessons for those who want to learn to kayak in these world-class rapids.

We cater to your needs, whether you're bringing the family in for the basics or you're an adventure-seeker looking to up your game.

You'll spend much of this session in easy, Class I moving water. Depending on your progress, you may even experience a brief foray into Class II water, which has bigger waves. This is the "Sampler," after all, and we want you to get a taste of the real stuff!

We try to maintain a 3-1 student to instructor ratio for a high-level of personal attention, while ensuring safety. All employees are certified whitewater kayak instructors by the American Canoe Association.

And don't worry if you don't have the gear. We outfit you with everything you need.

Time on Water

About 3 hours.

What’s Provided

Adventures on the Gorge's paddling school provides instruction at a 1:3 instructor-to-student ratio and transportation to the river. We also provide all the boating equipment you'll need.

What to Bring

Dress for the weather! You should wear a swimsuit and shorts at the very minimum, and bring more if the weather is going to be cooler. You will get wet in this class, so keep that in mind when you pick your clothes. Synthetic material works best. We also recommend a raincoat if the weather looks like it might go that direction—even when wet, the coat will help you stay warm. Also, bring sunscreen and sun glasses. In the spring and fall, consider renting a wetsuit and splash jacket.

Requirements & Restrictions

This activity may have age, physical ability or weight-related restrictions.

Trip Safety

Your guides and leaders will discuss specific safety requirements on site.
