Experienced and ACA Trained Kayak, SUP and Raft Guides

Our lead guides are experienced and love what they do. Two were on the Costa Rica Olympic Kayak team. One serves as the coach to the reigning National Champion rafting team that took 3rd place at Internationals in Argentina this past December. One is sponsored by Hala SUP as a Pro and is competing in the USA. One teaches at the world famous Otter Bar kayak school each summer in Northern California. One competed in the TicoMan (Iron Man) competition. All lead guides are ACA certified in Swift water rescue, kayaking, and one even volunteers as an EMT. Our guides are amazing but our online reviews say it best.
