Take an LA River Kayak Safari!
Whitewater and wildlife meet urban culture when you kayak the LA River with LA River Kayak Safari. Kayak with the best gear and swift-water trained local guides. Elysian Valley is a unique part of the River where you experience both gentle river moments and easy – but thrilling – rapids.
Each trip includes a short bike ride, river lore and a 2.5 mile downstream paddle through a stunning urban ecosystem you won’t believe is in the heart of Los Angeles.
