Due to Covid-19 restrictions we will not be offering our whitewater kayaking programs this season.  We hope to see you in the 2021 season.

Maine Kayak’s Youth Whitewater Instruction helps children progress from easy moving water to Class II-III in a progressive experiential learning environment.  Games and interactive exercises keep up the fun while skill building.

Youth trips are offered on the lower section of the Kennebec on easy moving waters and are designed to introduce kids to the fundamentals of kayaking and enjoying a relaxing day on the water. The Kennebec River is largely undeveloped with gorgeous rocky shorelines and big shade trees.  Youth will learn skills and team work in a fun paddling environment.

Amazing Whitewater Trip, Al and Jeremy were our guides on a beginner level Whitewater kayaking class. It was an amazing time, capstoned with a Class III run that everyone in our party nailed. Tons of fun, great instruction – and great river runs…Can’t wait to go back for the Part II of the course.
