Any true water person should attend: DVK Paddling School

Dvorak Expedition’s Paddling School has a variety of programs to fit your needs.

Our paddling clinics vary from a half-day introductory lake session covering  basic kayaking, stand up paddling, canoeing, or rafting in Colorado waters. We even offer 12-day paddling intensive with our recommendation of a 3-7 day clinic to get the most value from your time on the water. All of our whitewater rafting trips also include the instructional option as an add-on. Rescue Course Saftey
We will teach you the strokes and strategies you’ll need to learn how to guide yourself or others through flat-water or rapids. This is a unique and exhilarating way of learning a completely new way of experiencing the water if you are a committed paddler, regardless of age or previous level of paddling.

You can also choose the craft of your choice be that kayak, SUP, raft, canoe or all four! Our instructors are happy to share with you their knowledge about the most efficient techniques and important judgment calls you need to know to be a safe and proficient boater.

Private Instruction can be arranged for those looking to fine-tune your paddling skills!
