This is a 2 person clinic that has an exclusive emphasis on learning to row. Rowing your own river boat is a fun way to experience some adventure and we want to get you trained up quickly by getting you rowing for a few hours on your very first outing. The principles learned here can also apply to rowing your personal watercraft.

Lessons on Rowing Drift Boats

You won't find a better crew and location to learn the skills necessary to row and manage both drift boats, rafts, and personal watercrafts. Our lessons are personal, professional, and most importantly will get you rowing enough in a single outing to get confident.

These lessons can be scheduled almost anytime, but we prefer weekdays if possible so that there is minimal other traffic on the river to contend with.  We'll teach you all the basics from putting boats in the water at the launch, to taking the boat out of the water at day's end. When it comes to rivers... there are lots of opportunities to fumble and our goal will be to let you learn from our past mistakes.
