Description: Learn to kayak on the Coosa River.  This is a trip that a daring beginner will enjoy.  The river is gentle but there is one stretch of Class 3 rapids to make the trip exciting.  So, you might get wet if you have never been kayaking before.  We will be on the river about 4.0-4.5 hours counting our lunch break.
