About Our New River Kayaks Trips
The New River attracts canoeists, anglers, rafters, kayakers, rock climbers, bird watchers, and a host of other outdoor enthusiasts from across the country. NROC maintains a fleet of sit-on-top and sit-in recreational kayaks. These kayaks are very stable and easy to handle making them an excellent choice for paddlers just entering the sport, anglers who want to control their own vessel, or teens who want to follow the family on their own. Our kayaks have an easy entry cockpit, a comfortable seat, and optimum knee and legroom. A mix of canoes and kayaks allows everyone in the group to try it out making it a great option for that odd person out in your group. Paddlers will be given a thorough river orientation and a detailed map of the river trip they are undertaking. In addition, basic paddling instruction can be provided to the novice paddler. Next, you will be shuttled to the launch site where you will embark on your adventure. Please note that the lengths of the trips listed below are an estimate of how long they may take you to float. How fast or slow you paddle and the river level are just two factors that can cause your trip to be shorter or longer. For all trips, there will be a negotiated pick-up time at the take-out.
Please contact us if you wish to plan an overnight trip on The New. We will be glad to assist you in your trip planning.
