Kayaking in Dallas

Dallas, TX
10 Explorer Chicks
1/2 Day


Kayaking 🚣‍♀️ is more than just a fun way to explore our waterways.  It keeps us looking ahead and moving forward (literally and figuratively)! The calmness felt floating weightlessly on top of the water as the sun glistens down on the shimmering surface. The excitement felt as all the water’s secrets are revealed. The sounds of the paddles gliding through the stream and the birds serenading you from the forest. (Yeah, we’re ready to grab a paddle too!) Want to take your own paddling journey?  Join your fellow Explorer Chicks on this Kayaking Adventure on White Rock Lake.

Kayaking Skills Workshop

First time? No worries! Starting our day out, we will have a quick lesson for all of our beginner kayakers.  Learn how to get into your boat, how to paddle and how to steer your kayak smoothly across the water’s surface.

Sound dreamy but never kayaked? It’s all good! In this workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Terminology used.
  • Proper paddling posture.
  • Basic paddling strokes.
  • Safe paddling techniques.

White Rock Lake

After all the instructions and safety briefings are out of the way, we will confidently set off on our paddling Adventure. You’ll be paired with your new kayaking bestie in a tandem kayak. Before you know it, you’ll be gliding along like a well-oiled machine. One paddle stroke after another, you’ll become more one with nature’s beautiful surroundings. This park is filled with opportunities to see local plants and wildlife! Keep your peepers peeled for some of the more than 300 different kinds of animals that call White Rock Lake their home. Paddle around the lake as you take it all in. The blackland prairie. The sweetgum trees. The three-toed box turtles. Get lost in nature for a couple of hours and forget all about the hustle and bustle of city living.
