Ready to learn to River Kayak? Do you live near Seattle or want to get in on the Pacific Northwest kayak action? We are ready to outfit and teach you the basics you will need as you progress in the sport of kayaking. Outdoor Adventure Center’s “Introduction to Whitewater Kayaking” can give you a solid start in this unique outdoor sport. Your instructors will build on your previous watersports and paddling experiences to help you gain the knowledge, skills and safety awareness you’ll need for a lifetime of boating adventures.

Did you know that the state of Washington boasts more than 350 kayak friendly whitewater runs, many of them only a stones throw from Seattle?

This Whitewater Kayaking class is designed to introduce the novice kayaker to the fundamentals of river kayaking, and is suitable for beginning paddlers with minimal kayaking experience who have a strong motivation to learn quickly. It is also suitable for students with some on-river experience who are looking to improve their basic skills under the guidance and direction of our ACA instructors. Students will follow a natural progression from calm flatwater to gently moving water, then class I and II whitewater.

The course consists of two days of on-water practice with a brief classroom session at the start of the day and/or during lunch.


We keep our courses small to maximize your learning time with our amazing instructors. Class size is typically 4-6 students with 2 instructors.

  • Both days begin at 10am and end between 5-5:30pm.
