Although we provide instruction and support at every kayaking event, we know that some of you are more uncomfortable with the idea than others. You need a smaller group, more direct communication and you want to know the details … THIS event is for YOU! We will provide instruction and support before and during the event. We will answer all of your questions, demonstrate techniques and talk you through it from launch to load! Perry Lake LOCATION – will be finalized about one week before the event based on conditions. You will receive an email as we approach June 28th

asskickfaveFor all of these events you should….

Plan to bring: Water, food, snacks, sun screen, water, adult beverages, sun screen, water, umbrella or parasol, an old t-shirt or water UPF shirt

Wear: shorts, tank, t-shirt, swimsuit, water shoes or old tennis shoes – no flip flops

What are you paying for? Use of a kayak, paddle, life jacket and all of the lifting, hauling, planning and coordination needed to make this happen. Renters and OYO’s are paying for a river/lake guide and experienced safety paddlers who will ensure that your trip is safe and that you receive instruction and support along the way. We will have supplies necessary to provide basic first aid on the river or lake. Dirty Minions will provide the muscle to push renters out and pull renters in – they will also do all the lifting and loading of DGA kayaks. If OYO’s are interested in support from Minions, please consider tipping them. Their first responsibility is to renters who by definition need more support. Owning your own kayak entitles you to a lower price and your own lifting, hauling, loading etc.

Our refund policy: Refunds are given up to one week before the date of the event no questions asked, after that there are no refunds. Dirty Girl Adventures may cancel an event due to weather or conditions, everyone will receive a refund if that is the reason for the cancellation. We will paddle and hike in cool, rainy or snowy conditions. Cancellation only occurs in severe weather or due to other dangerous conditions.

Equipment policy: You break it or lose it you buy it.
