About NMKI

Kayaking has taken me places roads and trails don't go. Teaching has introduced me to some of my best friends, and rivers have taught me lessons that only nature and experiences can teach. It's been a goal of mine, since the very beginning, to share these experiences with you. Learn more.

New Mexico Kayak Instruction offers kayak lessons for beginners all the way through advanced whitewater kayaking in pools, lakes and rivers thoughout New Mexico.  Intro and kayak roll classes are taught weekly in Albuquerque.
