Learn the basics of whitewater kayaking, through a progression of paddling skills and river reading exercises.
We offer both whitewater kayak and recreational kayak courses and trips. Our recreational kayak trips range from a quick one-hour paddle, to a full six-to seven-hour day trip, to a multiple-day course, to hone your skills!
You may cancel 45 or more days before your Sierra South trip date and receive a full refund less a $25 processing fee per person. Cancellations made 44 days or fewer before trip date are non-refundable. If you must cancel, please try to find a friend to take your space. All trips go rain or shine. However, we reserve the right to alter or cancel a trip/class due to high- or low-water conditions, other such uncontrollable situations, or insufficient reservations. Only in the case of cancelled trips are trip fees refundable. Upon approval by our main office, refunds will be sent via mail. Refunds cannot be granted by guides, nor can refunds be given if you leave a trip or class early for any reason. Sierra South is not liable for other costs incurred in association with a cancelled trip. We suggest trip insurance such as Travelguard.com to cover any unexpected situations.
Some of our trips require a minimum number of guests to operate. All kayaking classes require a minimum of 4 students.
We will attempt to contact you if the minimums have not been met for the activity that you have chosen prior to trip date. Minimum numbers can be met through one or multiple reservations and can be met up to the day before the trip. You can call 800-457-2082 for up-to-date trip status.
