Alongside the carefully selected staff of seasoned instructors of the family-friendly Discover Kayak, you might find yourself gazing into the sunset or paddling along a calm waterway where herons fly from tree to tree. The certified patient instructors lead both novice and experienced groups out onto the gentle waters of Lake Arlington during leisurely tours and lessons in which they share kayaking techniques and tips for purchasing your own gear. And for those who'd like to explore the waters around the park on their own, they provide top-of-the-line rental gear, including touring, recreational, sit-on-top kayaks, and canoes. For most experiences the team offers, prior experience and gills are not necessary and instructors will set you up with safety gear, vessels, and the know-how to make your experience memorable.
