Everywhere a raft can go, and a few places it can't! Kayaks have become quite popular here because the river is very good for them almost all the time. And it offers varying levels of challenge, from relaxing slow-water floats to thrill-a-second, edge-of-control whitewater adventures for the more advanced boater. We also have calm lakes that are great for exploring via kayak - it is a whole new perspective! For aspiring whitewater conquerors, there is a great paddling school nearby (see below), and for all paddlers, we can set you up with packages for any style trip based right from Mary's Guesthouse.
