LA River Expeditions - SUMMER 2014 KAYAKING TRIPS - Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area
We are currently sold out through mid-August, but may soon be opening up more trips. To hear timely news on that, get on our e-mail list: http://ymlp.com/xgeejebsgmgh

WHERE: Our trips this 2014 summer will be in the Sepulveda Basin, located in the San Fernando Valley (near the Encino/Van Nuys neighborhoods). This is the site of the original guided kayak trips (since the first year: 2011) and is the most natural setting of all the LA River's green stretches, including the only parts of the river that have no concrete at all!

This soft-bottomed, lush section of the river is comprised of mostly flatwater and leisurely paddling, and contains the river's best viewings of wildlife. Come experience this serene yet vibrant natural resource via our guided recreational-educational trips. Whether you're a resident or a tourist, this is a whole new way to see Los Angeles!

WHAT: You'll paddle a part of this 1.5-mi. stretch in your single kayak in approximately 2 1/2 hrs., with all basic equipment provided (boat, lifejacket, paddle, helmet), as you learn through our staff about the watershed, the wildlife, and the history and politics of our hometown river. You'll pick up paddling skills and learn how to be safer around rivers and, of course, you'll have fun and get in some great exercise along the way.

HOW: We run this trip as a loop trail, so there are less hassles with portaging around hazards, getting stuck on rocks and schlepping back to your vehicle. You'll park at the start and depart from the same place.

WHY: For its river conservation work, LA River Expeditions is the recipient of the Green Paddle award (American Canoe Association), the River Warrior award (Resource Renewal Institute) and the River Hero award (River Network). As avid river enthusiasts and boaters, our experienced staff has decades of collective experience running rivers and guiding trips, and various levels of boating training & First Aid/CPR.

We are the only outfitter that's been a part of running trips each year since they began. Our original efforts back in 2008 led the way toward winning environmental protections for the LA River under the Clean Water Act while making these types of guided boating trips possible for the community's enjoyment and learning.

LOCATION: San Fernando Valley (Encino/Van Nuys neighborhoods), in the Sepulveda Basin Recreational Area. The put-in/take-out is just upriver from the Sepulveda Dam (near where I-405 meets the 101 freeway). Parking is at Woodley Ave. at Burbank Blvd. (on the east side of Woodley Ave.).  

CAVEATS:
* It can be very hot during the summer in this area. If you have particular issues with such heat, or tenuous medical issues, this may not be for you.
* The trip will require that you paddle your own boat (though beginners are welcome and our staff will work with you on this).
* The kayaks have a weight capacity of 220 lbs., so be sure that each person for whom you're buying a ticket meets that criteria. It's a stability/safety issue.
* This activity is appropriate for people from 9 to 90 years old (barring any extraordinary health or physical conditions).
* The trips are sometimes canceled due to inclement weather. If that happens we will do our best to place you on another trip (if that's not possible, we will plan to refund your money within a week).

If you're up for and able to handle this novel adventure, then we'd love to have you aboard! Click on "Get Tickets" to start the ticketing process.
