Kayaking and paddle boarding 'aka' SUP, is a versatile outdoor recreational activity that encourages physical fitness, nature exploration, and adventure.  Kayaking and paddle boarding provides opportunities for a wide range of personal interests from the serenity of gliding across a smooth lake, or exploring a meandering stream, to the thrill of paddling a whitewater river.  Kayaking or paddle boarding is a great way to spend an afternoon, a day, or longer with family and friends. Imagine gliding across a glassy section of water, with towering red sandstone and granite walls as part of our houseboat expeditions, or a fun after work session in a local lake on your favorite (...or soon to be) craft, with your family or friends. 

Increasingly, people with disabilities are discovering kayaking as a recreational activity. Using standard and/or adapted equipment, many people with disabilities can kayak on a "level paddling field" with their non-disabled peers.  For many participants minimal adaptations are necessary to enjoy kayaking.  For others, the increasing varieties of adaptations available are making kayaking accessible for even more participants.  

Adaptive Adventures paddle sports programs proudly own more adaptive gear and craft than most in the country.
