Ducky

For those looking for a real challenge, try a Ducky (inflatable kayak) Tour. Sit in a small two-person raft, and have your own kayak oar to steer with. This allows you to get closer to the river and the force of the water, the river seems more powerful than it does when sitting in a large raft. Under the watchful eye of our trained professional staff, we will show you the necessary techniques etc. needed to run rivers, and support you on your downriver Ducky tour.
