 Canoeing Instruction--Calm Water & White Water--

   2-Day Canoeing Workshops |  Whitewater Canoeing Instruction |   Boy Scout Canoeing Instruction

Our Philosophy:
Have fun and be safe.
Skilled boaters have more fun than unskilled boaters. Skilled boaters are safer boaters than unskilled boaters. Teaching you the skills necessary for you to become a good boater is what our program is all about. Our goal is for everyone to have a positive learning experience every day.
Our Primary River:
Our favorite schooling runs are on the middle section of the wild and scenic Klamath River
in Northern California. The Klamath is one of the finest rivers in California for beginning and intermediate canoers because it possesses that rare combination of good rapids and warm water. Most canoe clinics are conducted somewhere between Ash Creek (ten miles from Yreka) and Clear Creek (eight miles southwest of Happy Camp). That's 77 miles of easily accessible water from which we select the sections appropriate for our students (more about the Klamath River).
Our Canoe School Rates: We teach both solo and tandem canoeing. Fees are $200.00 per canoe per day (note that we charge per canoe, not per person). The price of instruction includes canoe, paddle(s), and life vest(s). All of our canoes are royalex whitewater boats with glued-in knee pads and extra floatation. Canoe West will transport canoes and gear. Paddlers should be prepared to help shuttle people.

To secure a date in advance, a 25% deposit is required to confirm your reservation. Final payment is due thirty days prior to your trip. If we receive written notice within 60 days of your trip, you will receive a full refund, less a $50.00 booking fee.
