2 Hours of Kayak +  Wild Cats Adventure Center visit  +  Lost Springs Hot SpringsDinner (or Lunch!)


The Inflatable Kayak, or “Duckie”, is a great alternative to rafting and the perfect way to experience the exhilaration of piloting your own craft down the river.  Inflatable Kayaking is unique because you are in control of your own raft at all times. Duckie’s are agile and sturdy enough to take on serious rapids and ride low in the water giving even small waves the experience of being more intense.   .


The Arenal River is a beautiful class II river located at the base of the Arenal Volcano and just minutes from your La Fortuna hotel!  The Arenal River winds throughout the Arenal Canyon offering spectacular views of lush tropical scenery and wildlife.


You will  start your adventure at the Arenal river bridge where our experienced instructors will take you through a thorough equipment check, river safety lesson, instruct you on the fine art of paddling a Duckie and lead you  through the class II rapids of the Arenal River.  Along the way, we will stop midway to refuel with fresh tropical fruits and at the end of our adventure will enjoy ice cold refreshments.


Relax at the end of your adventure with entrance to the the exclusive Springs Resort with some of the most beautiful Hot & Cold Springs, Mineral Pools and Waterfalls in the region.  You will also have  access to Perdido Springs (Lost Springs) which is a connected system of trails and seven naturally fed spring pools located within a lush forest canyon.  You will also experience the Las Lagunas (The Lagoons) which includes two acres of lush landscaping and an assortment of multi-level sun and shade terraces surrounding twelve semi-private pools.  We will also include a small visit to the wildcats rescue center with over 30 endangered species of wildcats under rehabilitation.  Your entrance will include wither lunch or dinner, depending on your arrival time, at Tres Cascadas gourmet buffet


Participants must be able to swim and not be afraid of water. – Guiding a Duckie is a solo activity and while our trips are guided by trained river guides, you will need to be a capable swimmer and paddlerYou don't need be an expert swimmer but you must be able to float, propel yourself in water and most of be ‘water safe’. If you are not able to swim, river rafting on one of our other trips may be a better place to start.

Participants must be in good physical condition. -Duckying is individually paced, but the sport is physical.
