Learn to Kayak Course - 4 Days

There's no better place to learn this exciting sport than on Ecuador's warm tropical rivers. Let our qualified instructors introduce you to the wonders of whitewater kayaking through this course designed for those with no whitewater kayaking experience.

This course starts with the basic techniques of whitewater kayaking and builds on those techniques with lots of on-river time. More advanced techniques are introduced each day as your confidence in whitewater increases. By the end of the course you should be ready to read and run grade III rapids (under supervision of more experienced paddlers!).
