Adapted Kayaking – Gallup Livery

The Adaptive Kayaking program allows participants with a disability to learn how to kayak and to spend time kayaking on the beautiful Huron River, accompanied by trained support staff and led by a trained, certified instructor. Participants are fitted to a kayak, including time for any adaptations needed, given kayaking instruction, and along with trained guides at a 2 to 1 ratio, try out their new skills on the river. If a participant is unable to kayak independently, they can still participate in one of our tandem kayaks. Each session is made up of two private classes, family and friends are welcome to participate. Participants can schedule lessons at either our Gallup or Argo locations. Please contact us if you would like to schedule private lessons. Contact: Gallup Canoe Livery, 734.794.6240, Cheryl Saam, [email protected]. Fee vary depending on number of classes and hours spent on the river. ​​
