Rendezvous River Sports & Jackson Hole Kayak School

Rendezvous River Sports and Jackson Hole Kayak School are now in our 29th season of operation. Rendezvous is the hub of paddle sports in Wyoming and is located in the heart of Jackson at 945 W. Broadway. Led by World Class expeditionary kayaker Aaron Pruzan, Jackson Hole Kayak School has the most experienced staff in the region. From international first descents, national-level Wildwater and freestyle competition, World Cup slalom racing and touring kayaking from Maine to Mexico and the Pacific Northwest our instructors have expertise in all aspects of paddling. This breadth of knowledge (combined with over 100s of years cumulative experience) gives an added element to our courses and tours that all of our guests will enjoy.
 
In addition to kayaking, Aaron has personally been at the forefront of river Conservation and access issues in Wyoming and the intermountain region. As a founding board member of the Snake River Fund, a former board member of American Whitewater and current board member of Protect Our Waters, he is a tireless advocate for the Snake River. Current work includes helping create the newly formed Snake River Headwaters Water Quality Working Group which is bringing together diverse river users to coordinate the best management possible.
 
We are fortunate to live and work in this unique area and look forward to sharing both our passion for paddle sports and the wonders of Grand Teton and Yellowstone with all our guests - we hope you join us! Courses and tours include instruction, guidance, interpretation, transportation, equipment and meals on full or multi-day trips. We provide only the best boats and gear and the food is excellent.
