  • Kayak Instruction
    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.

  • Lake Lewisville Boat Rentals
    Fun floats by air or by sea with watercraft rentals and aerial rides from Flying and Floating Toys.

Captained by the boat's owner, the Sportster has a tower that pulls boarders and skiers out of the water at a higher angle and 310 horsepower gets them up faster than an alarm clock made of three roosters. Float leisurely in the 22-foot 12-person pontoon boat ($75/hour for first two hours with a two hour minimum, $60/each additional hour, $10 extra/hour for a driver) or grab two friends for a ride on a Yamaha VX110 WaveRunner jet ski ($75/hour for first two hours, $60/each additional hour).

Fly solo or copilot a one- or two-person kayak around Lake Lewisville or tow kayaks to another lake or comically oversized hottub ($50/half day, $75/day, $225/week). Rental fees include gas, tax, and life jackets, and all boats feature a CD/MP3 player.

  • Camp Kiowa
    Each day at Camp Kiowa brings a new adventure. Once the sun rises over the lake, woods, and sprawling grounds, campers and counselors embark on any number of activities. Recreation includes swimming and paintball, and enrichment activities occupy minds with Lego robotics, candle-making, or even magic lessons, during which they can vanish all the extra candles they just made. Days finally wind down with an evening activity, perhaps a dance or a gathering around the campfire. But Camp Kiowa offers more than an opportunity to exhaust kids during summer vacation?namely a chance for campers to make new friends and find role models in their counselors.
