Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center has been the premier school for whitewater kayak instruction in the Rocky Mountain West since 1982. Our kayaking school is on the banks of Colorado's famous Arkansas River so your white water classroom is just outside the door!
Whether you want to learn to roll a kayak, sharpen your river safety skills or work on advanced playboat techniques, we have the facilities, state-of-the-art gear and friendly, knowledgeable ACA certified instructors to help you succeed while having a great time. If you'd rather just have some professional help as you navigate various stretched of the Arkansas, consider one of our guided kayak trips down classic runs like Brown's Canyon, Royal Gorge, The Numbers and Bighorn Sheep Canyon (Parkdale).
Take a look at our menu of options for other whitewater experiences including inflatable kayaks (aka Duckies), women's kayak clinics, and guided trips. For the quintessential Colorado vacation, join us at RMOC. Our excellent whitewater classroom - and your springboard to a lifetime of adventure - are just a little more than two hours by car from Denver or Colorado Springs.
