Easy or intermediate whitewater kayak trip:
The half day inflatable kayak trip is ideal for people who desire a more challenge experience compared to rafting and the opportunity to be the captain of your own whitewater craft. Due to its design, it is much more stable on the water than the traditional plastic kayak. However, it does not require any paddling skills but you have to be fit and physically capable to paddle. Our guides will teach you everything you need to know to be able to manage your own boat! The Guppy is a one-person kayak designed to provide the most fun for beginners and experienced paddlers on whitewater day trips. The Ducky is a longer double version that is ideal for larger individuals or as a tandem two person adventure.
By the end of the trip there is a good chance be addicted to whitewater kayaking :-)
On the half day kayak trip, we go down on one of the most popular sections of the Soca River. You can choose between a beginner (Class I-II) and intermediate (Class II-III) section.
Attention! The intermediate trip is not recommended for people who have never tried whitewater rafting, have no paddling skills or boating experience. We recommend choosing the beginner class for your first adventure and then our guides will help you advance your new skills to the next level on our intermediate adventure!
Our kayak trips are guided by an instructor who will let you know everything about the river, safety, and paddling technics.

The first part of the river is easier, where you can practice what you have learned. The second part is longer and more fun. The river goes through a nice, open gorge with big rocks, waves and rapids (Class II-III). We can guarantee no one will get out dry. During the trip we will stop to refresh ourselves and you have a chance to jump from smaller and bigger rocks or if you are feeling adventurous you can try swimming down on an easy rapid.
