If you're visiting for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, and looking for a great way to relax between the morning balloon flights and the evening balloon glows, then come join us on a kayaking trip on the Rio Grande.  The changing Fall colors of the Rio Grande Bosque (Spanish for forest) from green, to gold is typically in full swing, the wildlife and migrating waterfowl is abundant and you'll experience the watermelon hue of the sun setting on the Sandia Mountains, thus giving them its namesake.

Our beginner-friendly kayak tours are great for out of town guest, including pilots and crew members! 

A typical afternoon tour meets a 1pm and wraps by 6pm.

I like the emphasis on kayaking as a positive experience.  After taking the classes, you realize that you can have a very fun time, even before mastering the roll.  Other classes I've taken make the roll seem like a necessity, and learning to roll (or not), becomes the focus, which eclipses the fun of kayaking.

The class that I attended was small but the level of experience was quite varied.  Kelly has a great sense where the students skills were at during the weekend.  Kelly had a sense when a student needed to re-group after a bit of trouble and when he could push them with new skills to build their confidence.  Overall the group proceeded very smoothly through the weekend course without interuption.
