Schedule of Instruction

We will be available in the Southeast on any days in March and April and from mid-May through the end of August in 2013. If you would like to check availability or reserve dates, please contact us.

Classes usually start at 9:30-10:00 AM on the first day, and we try to wrap it up by 3:30-4:00 on the second day of 2 day courses.

Instruction Locations

Instruction will be located within 3 hours of Asheville, depending on water conditions. If there is no water in appropriate free flowing rivers, instruction can be held on the Ocoee for a $25/person/day surcharge. We are happy to reserve dates for you based on a specific river that you would like to learn on, and you will only be charged if that river is running on your chosen dates.
