  • Potomac Paddle Sports
    At Potomac Paddlesports, the first professional kayak 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.

    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Valley Mill Kayak School facet_type_id: 20b3ff40-5f37-1032-9ebf-9c6954d26044 html_text: |- Since 1956, Valley Mill Kayak School has trained countless kayakers, including the first kayaking recipients of Olympic medals, on the deep waters of the Potomac River. A former Olympian and four-time freestyle-kayaking world champion, Eric Jackson personally designs the school's lesson plans around modern whitewater-paddling techniques. Eric trains each of the school's American Canoe Association–certified instructors, who, in turn, dispense their knowledge to beginners and proficient paddlers alike. Through a wealth of small classes, private lessons, and occasional clinics taught by Eric himself, pupils discover such skills as paddling and basic strokes, or attempting to work your kayak into rhythmic-gymnastics routines.

  • Active Nature
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Active Nature facet_type_id: 869ef510-1c71-1033-9bdb-d29eab054fa1 html_text: |- Some people might think of the White House as the heart of the Washington, DC region. However, to Active Nature's guides, the region's heart is the rushing Potomac River and its surrounding parks. It's where they teach paddle sports such as kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. The team draws from diverse backgrounds—some have even paddled in the Olympics for the U.S. and other countries—but they all believe that anyone can learn to paddle. The keys, which they emphasize whether they're training newbies or Active Nature's competitive paddling team, never change: technical skill, confidence, and river knowledge. (The latter means not just navigating the river adeptly, but treating it well, with sustainability in mind.)

Make sure you bring clothes that you don't mind getting wet. Handicap Accessible: Yes Parking: Parking lot Most Popular Attraction/Offering: River Tours Recommended Age Group: All Ages Calleva With a name that means "where the paths cross," it's no surprise that Calleva is dedicated to bringing people of all ages and from all walks of life together to appreciate the outdoors. The certified MAEOE environmental center helps its guests dive into the heart of the wilderness right outside D.C. and raise awareness about its delicate ecosystems. In doing so, it encourages others to cooperate and take risks while stepping out of their comfort zones, like baby birds leaving the nest to start their own nest-building business. To facilitate these efforts, a team of ACA-certified guides helms seasonal outdoor-adventure and educational programs. In warm weather, activities might include kayaking and canoeing down winding stretches of the Potomac River or paddling to a private island filled with ropes-challenge courses and other obstacles. Fishing and ecological-study programs present even more varied ways to explore the water. Other adventures include the year-round, such as backpacking; the cold weather, such as caving; and the whimsical, such as the annual haunted forest where ghosts and ghouls mingle under a zip-line course.
