Quality Guiding and Instruction

Welcome And What's New At DAK

Our spring trips in 2016 on the Lower Owyhee were outstanding! Guests were blown away by the fun whitewater and the stunning canyons with their constantly changing geology. Go on over to our webpage to read more about this unique adventure. Folks are already signing up for a second go at this remote and amazing river.

For the first time ever, DAK is offering a 6-day trip in July 2017 on Idaho's Main Salmon! We've had too many requests to offer a trip on this big-water, Class 3 run. Famous for it's huge sandy beaches, great wave trains and excellent surf waves, we agree it is a gem of an overnighter. For more info go directly to the Momentum website. For either of these trips email Momentum or call 541-488-2525. We look forward to sharing these rivers with you.

We think there's nothing better than slipping into river time and returning to what is truly significant. It's very likely that you do too. Whether you are new to the sport of whitewater kayaking, interested in making plateau breakthroughs, or wanting an exceptional wilderness or international trip, join us in reaching your destination. You'll find our company encourages your progress and your confidence, and ensures that you'll have fun along the way. If this is what you're looking for, we look forward to paddling with you!

It is our goal to provide the best in whitewater guiding and instruction to groups and individuals. What sets us apart? Our experience. For over 30 years we've been teaching and guiding, and we love it! Our students will tell you that we individualize what we teach and how we guide to meet each persons needs.

ACA Legends of PaddlingVery few companies can boast that one or both of the owners are on every offering that's listed. We like to say that we are small on size and huge on experience. We are actively involved in the teaching and guiding disciplines of our sport, contributing to the most current information in the field. We write articles and books, have co-written and are featured in many instructional DVDs. We are the leaders in the field. Come paddle with us!


" Phil and Mary are awesome instructors and guides. It's obvious that they love what they do. They have a great ability to share their technical wizardry and inspire. Anyone who paddles with them will come away a better boater. And, they are just fun to hang out with on the river!"
