What if I don't own a boat?
Nature Nicole Whitewater LLC operates as a Guide and Instructor, not an outfitter. Rental fleets and demo boats are available from other business in southern Oregon, see the Resources Page for more ideas if you require outfitting. ACA Level 4 Swiftwater Rescue courses include the use of a NNWW raft and a NNWW inflatable kayak as needed. Customers may contact me to inquire about the availability of NNWW rental boats for our courses, but availability is limited so it is better if you can supply your own craft. Daily rentals start at $50 for raft and paddles, $15 for frame and oars, and $25 for inflatable kayaks and paddle. NNWW rentals are only available to customers currently booked on a clinic, class, or course.

Reviews for NNWW
"Swift water training is not just for the professional boater. As a private boater, I found this class to be a extremely valuable experience. I left with a greater confidence in my abilities and a deeper understanding whitewater safety.!"
