Whitewater Kayaking Instruction 101
Olympic Outdoor Center
602 North Interstate 35, San Marcos Texas 78666
Come join us for a day of Kayak instruction at the new river park built for kayaking. Our instructors are all experienced kayakers and Olympic winner Ben Kvanli is our head instructor! Once we have the basics down, we will kayak the San Marcos River.
If possible arrive at the Olympic Outdoor Center Friday night for preliminary outfitting and instruction. If you can't make it Friday night please come early Saturday to get outfitted. Plan to be on the water first thing in the morning to get out on the river and have some fun!!
The river has 3 small rapids. Downstream, the San Marcos river has 2 more rapids. This will be for beginner and experienced kayakers. They specialize in instructing beginners and if you do not want to do any of the rapids you can easily portage around them! The kayaks are whitewater boats with skirts.
We are getting an awesome rate of $95.00 per person instead of the normal $130.00 which includes kayak rental, paddle, helmet, life vest, and a shuttle. Bring lots of water, snacks, cash for lunch and sunscreen.
Wear a swimsuit or board shorts and a top. You will probably want a t-shirt to protect you from the sun in the afternoon. Don't forget your towel! If you do not have a dry bag, just bring your river stuff in a bag that we can leave on the shore.
You will pay OOC directly and they take cash, checks and credit cards. For more information or for to RSVP, please call 713 524 3567 or visit http://www.BayouCityOutdoors.com
When & Where
Bayou City Outdoors
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Typically most BCO events are for adults. But, we do love kids. If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem. AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet. Questions? Contact us at email@example.com
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
We add parking details to the Event descriptions.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog. We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).
BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us. Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride. Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!
Bring water. Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way. Water is important.
HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes. Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.
SOCIAL: If it is a social event? Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in. We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs. People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower! (and everything in between)
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Yes - see love & friendship above!
