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.

Kayak Instruction

New Mexico Kayak Instruction offers a variety of classes to fit your schedule, budget and paddling interest. Classes are taught in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Santa Fe and Los Alamos, as well as a variety of lakes and rivers in New Mexico.

Kayak Sales
