  • Active Nature
    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.)

  • Valley Mill Kayak School
    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.

  • Calleva
    Established: 1994 Reservations/Appointments: Not required Staff Size: 2–4 people Average Duration of Services: 1–2 hours Pro Tip: Come ready for adventure and fun. 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.

  • Penguin Paddling LLC
    There's a Virginia outdoorsman who's been called the "Penguin" for most of his life, due to his short, stocky stature. Rather than let that nickname defeat him, he used it as the inspiration for his touring and rental company, Penguin Paddling LLC. Today, when he isn't fighting fires or working as a paramedic, The Penguin leads guests out onto the water for adventures via kayak and stand-up paddleboard, going all the places that motor-powered craft cannot. Trips down the protected Neabsco Creek may bring paddlers face-to-face with native wildlife or vigilante hero, Kayak Cop. This secluded waterway is also the setting for the company's fishing trips and on-water yoga classes. In addition to tours, Penguin Paddling LLC provides hourly- and full-day rentals from its facilies at Hampton’s Landing Marina in Woodbridge and Madigan's Waterfront Restaurant in Occoquan, VA, which lie adjacent to several national and state-protected wilderness areas.
