A Safe Kayaking Adventure is a Fun Kayaking Adventure!
Our commitment to the professional development of our team of guides assures the comfort and safety of our guests. We offer great value for our visiting adventurers by providing well-maintained equipment and attentive customer service.
All of our Eco Adventurers are given a refresher lesson (or more if required) on paddling skills and safety procedures. Our guides will provide orientation of our equipment, basic strokes and skills, and how to get out of (and back into) your kayak in the event of a turn-over. We will also show you a few key hand signals to communicate on the water, and emphasize the importance of staying together.
Each guest is issued a lifejacket, rope and whistle plus a night safety light. Our Guides are trained in the use of safety equipment including first aid kits, flares, towlines and two-way radios. Our kayaks are also equipped with nighttime running lights.
Additionally, we know the areas we paddle and we constantly check the weather to ensure that you kayak adventure is safe and FUN!
