LA River Kayak Safari is an urban-nature adventure that combines bikes, kayaks, instruction and conversation about the Los Angeles River.   We discuss the past and future of the LA river.  Along the way you learn how to paddle and run small rapids.  We pass through Elysian Valley (Frogtown,)  next to the future State Park.  Our offerings:

  • Midday Tour : 1.75 miles.  Total trip time is around 3 hours. (12:45pm-3:30pm) including bike ride, instruction, discussion and time on the water.
  • Sunset Safari: 1.75 miles.  Total trip time around 3 hours. (3:45 – 6:45 pm)  including bike ride, instruction, discussion and time on the water.

Occasionally we take a longer trip that is 2.5 miles long.  For intermediate and advanced paddlers only due to a challenging rock navigation stretch.  If you or your group desires that extra challenge write through our contact page.
