Whitewater Kayaking Trips

Ask any of our guides what they do in their free-time and most of them will mention whitewater kayaking. So it’s no surprise that OARS has offered whitewater kayaking instructional programs on Idaho’s Salmon River for decades.

Our Idaho whitewater kayaking school is designed for anyone looking to get their feet wet and learn the basics of whitewater kayaking in an intensive five-day clinic on the warm and friendly Class III waters of the Lower Salmon River. And who better to learn from than some of the best paddling pros in the industry? Our guides are ACA (American Canoe Association) certified kayak instructors, and better yet, we provide all the gear, take care of all your meals, and we carry everything but the kitchen sink (literally) downriver on inflatable rafts.


Of course, if you’re already a solid kayaker and would like to paddle along with OARS on a fully-supported river trip, we’re happy to accommodate you on many of the rivers we run. Or maybe it’s just that your family wants to raft, but you’d rather kayak. Either way, we can make your next river trip hassle-free. Call us today at 1-800-346-6277 to plan your next whitewater kayaking adventure with OARS.
