At Potomac River Outfitters, our goal is to provide custom kayak lessons and paddling trips to visitors and residents of Washington DC as well as the surrounding region.

By utilizing our expertise, gained over many years paddling and our large network of friends and colleagues, we strive to offer a wide variety and evolving list of great adventure travel opportunities, unique guest instructor clinics, and development opportunities for the aspiring paddling professional.

For students wanting to try out kayaking, we have some great “gateway” paddling experiences and an engaging approach to help you learn the sport. For outfitters, scouting programs, camps, college outdoor programs, and kayak vendors we offer our expertise in staff training, trip leading, and leadership skills development.
