Kevin Garder kayaking in the Harvey pool

Open Kayak is an opportunity for individuals to learn about kayaking or practice their existing kayaking skills. Equipment and teaching from qualified instructors is provided.

Come on down and try out kayaking for the first time, brush up on your existing skills, and learn how to roll!

Fall Semester 2021 OPEN KAYAK HOURS:
Mondays and Wednesdays from 8-10pm, at the Harvey Pool
in the Baker Ferguson Fitness Center while the College is in session. Participation is free and available to Whitman students.  Occasionally, Kayak Polo will be played in one of the pools, in addition to  general instruction.  This is announced generally a week in advance.

Due to Covid precautions, community members are NOT allowed in the pool area as of Fall 2021.  We will update the page when this changes.  Normally, community members can participate for $10/night or $50/semester. 

Our equipment includes:

  • Over 30 whitewater kayaks, 8 sit on top kayaks, and occasionally sea kayaks
  • Paddles
  • Skirts
