Lessons & Tours

Our professional staff can help make you a better paddler or simply take you someplace special!


Let our expert instructors guide you on a most excellent adventure towards paddling enlightenment.  Well OK we may have overstated that, but we do promise we can make you a better paddler.  Our small class sizes allow for a lot of personal interaction and attention with our students, and our waterfront park and paddle location allows for simple access to the protect waters of the Ausable River, allowing you to focus on what you want to get better at, not the next big boat wake, or some other distraction to the task at hand – your improvement as a paddler.
