canoeing and kayaking near Tampa, Florida
First Timers Instruction in progress.Welcome first-time paddlers! We specialize in beginners and novice paddlers. The Hillsborough River is well-suited to beginners due to its flatwater characteristics, slow-moving nature, and wildlife abundance. Come see why paddling is such a growing "life" sport. All ages of folks have taken our paddling trips from a few weeks old to 90+.

Canoe and kayak on the Hillsborough.We'll be happy to take the extra time necessary to provide you with basic paddling techniques and the river information you need. By the end of your first canoe escape you will impress your friends with your knowledge of the draw, rudder, and "J" strokes.

We generally recommend Trip 1, a two-hour Wilderness Park trip or an hourly rental for a first experience. Be sure to bring along plenty of water to drink, some snacks or perhaps a picnic lunch, and your sense of adventure.
