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

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.
