Beginning whitewater kayaking on the American River










For 20+ years Current Adventures’ whitewater kayaking instruction program is where California paddlers have sent their friends and family to learn kayaking the right way! The proven itinerary of our whitewater kayaking classes is the fastest way to get started in the exciting sport!!  Our small classes assure not only personal attention, but a safer experience as well. 

We run our whitewater kayaking classes with a 3:1 student/instructor ratio or better – the best in the industry!

In Whitewater River Kayaking 1 (RK1) you’ll develop the foundation and skills necessary to paddle on your own with friends. Our friendly, experienced instructors start  in the pool or easy moving water, overcoming any fears while  introducing basic paddling strokes & techniques. By Day 2, you’ll amaze yourself as you paddle through the eddies and currents under your own power. With increasing confidence and boat control you’ll weave and glide down a new stretch of the river and by the end of the day you’ll be planning your return for River Kayaking 2!!

Client Comments:
And again, many thanks to you for getting me back out on the water.  I’ve not felt the exuberance I experienced last Sunday in quite some time.  People wanted to know what that big
grin on my face was all about ;-)
With gratitude,
We have lots of guaranteed water in spite of the drought –making The American River the place to kayak in 2014!
