Experienced kayakers can embark on undirected adventures while renting a variety of kayaks ready for whitewater or quiet ripples along the waters of Lake Ray Hubbard, where they can stick close to the shoreline to catch glimpses of bald eagles, blue herons, and coyotes. Rentals take place between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and include quick instruction from staffers, helmet rental, and spray skirts for whitewater and sea kayaks. Alternatively, groups of up to 12 follow demonstrations from certified instructors at the Colony Aquatic Park’s heated indoor pool. Classes take place from November through March on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Kayak Instruction, Inc.
Kayak Instruction, Inc.'s tale begins in 2000, when Dave Holl and his friends went kayaking in the Grand Canyon. As he paddled through the crashing water and listened to the laughter of his friends, Dave came up with a plan to start his own kayaking school. He'd hire a crew of top instructors—certified teachers with a real love for the sport—and build a fleet of quality kayaks.
Today, Dave's crew of seasoned instructors boasts an abundance of kayaking certifications and awards. When the instructors aren't helping fledgling kayakers achieve mastery over their oars, they're parting Texas waters during tours of scenic landscapes populated by bald eagles, blue herons, and fluttering land sharks. The team also rents out an assortment of recreational, tandem, whitewater, and sea kayaks by the day.
