Potomac Paddlesports

At Potomac Paddlesports, the first professional paddlesports school to be endorsed by the American Canoe Association, the team of American Canoe Association– and British Canoe Union–certified instructors patiently lead students through a methodical progression of flat-water paddling skills. The classes cover a variety of watersports, including whitewater rafting, river and sea kayaking, and standup paddling. The small-group classes are designed to keep students engaged, and longer trips down the Potomac challenge their skills with powerful rapids surrounded by lush scenery, interspersed with rare glimpses of bears putting on their bear suits. Outside of class, students can bond with fellow paddlers during weekly sushi meals and occasional movie nights. Further demonstrating their dedication to bodies of water, Potomac Paddlesports works to preserve the nation’s rivers, estuaries, and oceans, sharing this passion with its members through advocacy and donations to conservation programs.

Would do it again!! Beautiful, serene surroundings. Instructor was very relaxed and kind enough to wait for me (I was 5 minutes late) to start.
Fiorentina B. · August 22, 2014
The staff is awesome. Extremely helpful, attentive and fun. I learned a lot at my very first SUP lesson. I would highly recommend anyone to Potomac Paddle Sports.
