Kayaking and Stand Up Paddleboarding
Take to the water! Paddling is a great way to explore the White Mountain Region. During our scheduled paddle days, our trained coaches will find the appropriate watercraft for you…Kayaking uses a double-bladed paddle, Canoeing utilizes a single-bladed paddle or introduce you to the new trend in paddlesports; Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). “SUPing” is where one stands on an inflatable board utilizing a single-bladed paddle to propel them through the water. Whether kayaking, canoeing or paddling, students will enjoy the day on the water with friends, professional facilitators having fun and enjoying the beauty of the White Mountains. Sessions are approximately 2 hours.
