We'll meet at the take out for the end of our run, check that we have all our gear, then hop in our shuttle vehicle for a ride to the start of our run. Before we climb aboard, we'll learn the basics of how to travel the river as a team- which is a must. Once we have the basics covered, we'll get dressed for the weather and water temperature- at minimum a lifejacket a helmet during warm summer months, up to a wetsuit or drysuit in the cooler seasons- and after we'll get on the river and practice a few useful skills- crossing current, stopping, and surfing waves. Next we'll head downstream, watching underneath our boats for salmon, trout, and salamanders, and looking up for eagles, osprey, and herons. We'll navigate rapids, explore the river's backchannels, get out and stretch on secluded sandbars, and maybe even rest for quick round of bocce ball. If we are feeling warm at the end of our run, maybe we'll finish our day by jumping in the river for a great photo finish! Note: river choice subject to change based on water levels. You don't need any previous experience in a kayak- just the ability to swim and a desire for fun!
We will run shuttle. We'll move all of us between the put in and take out.

I have been a paddling coach and guide for more than a decade. I've been lucky enough to work and teach in Alaska, Chile, and all over the east and west coasts of the United States and Canada. I hold international paddlesport certifications and safety awards, but what is most important is that I'm here to make sure you have the best time possible. As a professional outdoor educator and trip leader, I'll make sure our experience is tailored to you and your group. I now run Seattle Adventure Sports, whose focus is getting people outside exploring the beautiful area we live in.
Where we paddle depends on the river levels, so this is subject to change. Our preferred river, the Snoqualmie River, is paddle-able 11.5/12 months. We'll put on near the base of Snoqualmie Falls and have the chance to hike up right near the base and even swim in the pool at the bottom. Without a kayak the view we have is very hard to replicate.
