Cheat Death on the Cartecay
Come spend the day with me on the Cartecay as we snub our nose in the face of Mr. Death and say “Not Today!”. Seriously it will be a fun, relaxed day on the cartecay river from Cartecay River Experience to Blackberry Falls, a class 2/2+ run suitable for newer paddlers with some basic skills. In addition to full equipment including boat, pfd, paddle sprayskirt, helmet, appropriate water clothing and full covering shoes, the following skills: Paddle in turbulent water, eddy turns, peel-outs and ferrying in swift water. If you have not paddled this river before (or you haven’t paddled with me before), please contact me first at, let me know who you are and tell me about your paddling experience, things like rivers you’ve paddled in a kayak, training you’ve had, etc. and we’ll talk.
