Boat Demo Programs
"One Time" On-Site DemosTake our demo boats out for FREE during our open hours. Whitewater demos are available on the class I-II whitewater outside the doors of our Yorkville Outdoor Center. Touring/Sea kayaks, recreational kayaks and canoes are available for demo on the miles of flat water surrounding the whitewater. Please call ahead to check the availability of your desired boat. We also demo paddles.

If you are unsure of the exact boat that will match your needs our staff is happy to assist you with your selection. The best way to choose your boat is to test paddle a variety of models and we make it easy for you. Invest $300 (Sea Kayaks) and $200 (Whitewater Kayaks) into your future boat purchase.
