Join us for an exciting trip down the Mad River!  There are two kayaking trips to choose from on Saturdays.  Eastwood to Keowee; or Eastwood to Riverscape.

Eastwood to Keowee:  This trip is approximately 3 miles long.  We will launch at the River Feature at Eastwood Park.  You can spend some time playing around at the put-in and we’ll show you a few tricks to get you started.  At that point you will proceed downstream where you’ll enjoy how scenic and peaceful the river is.  Chances are you will see some wildlife.  You’ll run thru some fun wave trains.  Paddle under a couple of bridges.  Then when you least expect it, you turn the corner and you are presented with a spectacular view of downtown Dayton.  The take-out point will be at Whitewater Warehouse.  You’ll be on the river for approximately 2 hours (depending on how long you play at the feature).  Cost for this trip will be $30.00 per person.

Eastwood to Riverscape:  Same trip as above, but you will continue down to Riverscape where you will enjoy the fountains and be able to run the new water feature at Riverscape.  Estimated water time is 3 hours.  Cost for this longer trip will be $38.00 per person.
