Kayak Rogaine

This is our take on a adventure race, involving map reading and tactical planning. Each group is given a time frame, and from a map must collect as many check points as they can with in time frame.

We use our Barracuda AR duos, the same type kayaks as used in the Gods Own Adventure Race.

We can provide a motorized support boat to monitor the course.

This normally takes around 2.5 hours.
