We are located Edwards, CO in the Vail Valley right in the center of Colorado's Rockies. We literally have year round kayaking in this area (if you can deal with the cold water in the winter). Conveniently located on the I-70 corridor, we are in the middle of it all!!
AQS has been teaching kayaking since 1989 previously as Alpine Kayak. We have one of Colorado's largest kayak & standup paddleboard schools and pride ourselves on the quality of instruction and all around experience we can provide to our guests. All of our lead instructors are First Aid/ CPR Certified, have Swiftwater Rescue & are certified by the American Canoe Association (ACA) to teach. We recruit instructors from all across the United States to make sure that we have instructors that will not only teach you the skills, but assure that you will have a great time while learning!!
Classes are offered for all ages and ability levels and are taught on local rivers, lakes and pools. We have access to over 100 miles of the Colorado, Eagle & Roaring Fork Rivers. This allows us to cater our programs to make sure that you have the right learning environment whether it is May, September or anywhere in between. Water levels are constant on the Colorado River year round so during a record runoff or a drought year we can offer classes on a great stretch of river!
