OPEN WATER SAILING AND WHITE WATER RAPIDS; EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY AND VERSATILITY OF THE CANOE
Canoes are incredible boats, offering a lifetime of reward and enjoyment for individuals and groups. Journey on lakes to explore islands and witness a unique view of the scenery from the water. Take a river trip, surf play waves, shoot rapids and feel the thrill. Canoe for a day, or turn your trip into an expedition, camping out in the wilderness.
If you haven’t paddled an open boat before, be warned: you may become addicted for life!
For beginners, your guide will choose a sheltered area where you can spend time becoming familiar with your canoe and learning paddle strokes. From there you can move on to a lake or easy river journey to consolidate your skills, perhaps rafting your canoes and hoisting a sail if the weather allows. On warm days, jump out and go for a swim.
For the more experienced, your guide will choose a journey that offers challenge and thrill at your level. We offer coaching: refining strokes and improving your use of edge, angle, weight and momentum, enabling you to feel the satisfaction of elegant control.

You will need:
