    Join ULI San Antonio Young Leaders for a self-guided kayak ride along the world-famous San Antonio River Walk as it winds through Downtown San Antonio! This is a wonderful easy 3.25 mile flat-water kayak trip which is great for beginner kayakers. Being able to kayak on this section of the San Antonio Riverwalk is a VERY RARE experience. Access to this section of the San Antonio River is only available though the end of 2021.
     
    Space is LIMITED!!! We have reserved 20 kayaks, so sign up now to save your spot. 1-seaters and 2-seaters available.
     
    Launch times start at 8:00am and you will have access to the kayak for two hours from when you begin until 11:15am. Your registration includes: Kayaks, Paddles, Life Vests

    WHAT TO BRING:
    ·A water bottle, sunscreen, sunglasses and hat are good to bring along.
    ·Dress for the weather. 
    ·Bring shoes that you don’t mind getting wet.
    ·Kayaking is a water sport and you will get damp and your rear end a little wet. It is a good idea to bring a change of clothes. (leave your change of clothes and or towel in your vehicle)
    ·Bring some type of waterproof bag to keep your keys and cellphone in.
    ·There are NO lockers at this location so please plan accordingly.
     
    IMPORTANT INFO:
    ·This is NOT a guided tour! This mean you will be able to enjoy kayaking on the SA Riverwalk at your own pace for 2-hours.

    ·Kayaking is allowed on the river from 8am-11:15am

    ·Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled rental so you can sign waivers and be fitted for your life
    jacket!!!

    ·No beer or alcohol are allowed while kayaking. If you chose to break this rule the SA Police, in their motorboats,
    will arrest you for a BWI (Boating while intoxicated) and its as expensive and 
    has the same consequences as a DWI!
     
    ·Once you are seated in the kayak you are not permitted to get out of the kayak until you are done with your rental and are back at the rental dock. This means that you CANNOT dock the kayak along the riverwalk and get out to go shopping, have breakfast/lunch, have a drink, or any other land based activity. (These activities can be done once your kayak rental is finished).

    ·City maintenance barges may be present on the river. If they are you MUST move to the side of the river (against the concrete walls of the river) and allow the barge to pass. This is for your safety… kayaks are hard to see and the barges are NOT easily maneuvered. So the right-of-way always goes to the barges.

    ·You must wear a lifejacket (PFD) at all times and it must be securely buckled the entire time you are in the kayak. The use of a life Mission Kayak lifejacket (PFD) is included in the rental price. If you have your own coastguard approved lifejacket (PFD) feel free to bring it and use it. The river police will ticket you and escort you back to the dock if you do not have your lifejacket (PFD) on and buckled. Tickets are expensive!!
