America's appetite for adventure is well demonstrated with the success of such publications as Outside magazine. Anyone who has traveled to rivers or oceans can't help but notice that paddling has become one of America's fastest growing adventure pastimes. From sea kayaking in remote bays to shooting Class V rapids in a narrow mountain gorge, Top Rated Paddling Adventures is the guide you will need. You will make sure you are choosing a paddling guide, outfitter or lodge that has satisfied their previous clients with fun and safety. Entries document what kinds of water and what watercraft are used, as well as providing tremendous detail on the range of dry land activities that may also be available. Photos bring these venues to life. Maps make it easy to plan a paddling adventure in connection with other travel plans in the area. Stuff a copy in your dry bag when planning your next adventure.
