Overview

Black Feather's Canoe Tripping Clinic" is designed to prepare paddlers with some previous experience for a significant expedition on a northern river. The focus is on whitewater maneuvers, safety techniques and river rescues, gear selection, outfitting, and rigging for wilderness river trips. You will learn how to work as an organized team, scouting, descending, and supporting each other in significant rapids.
Since 1972, Black Feather has introduced thousands of paddlers to the fun and excitement of whitewater canoe-tripping. We primarily teach a style of paddling designed to let you safely descend rapids in a loaded, tandem, tripping canoe. You will receive professional instruction in a relaxed and enjoyable setting at the Madawaska Kanu Centre (MKC). Situated right on the river, MKC has been Canada's premier school for whitewater kayaking over 40 years. Exceptional meals will be provided by MKC. Dormitory-style accommodation is also included, or you may upgrade to a private room for a modest cost. After the clinic you'll be ready to head out on your own or try one of our more-challenging river expeditions. The canoe-tripping clinic is offered jointly by Black Feather and our friends at MKC.
