Founded in 1880, The American Canoe Association (ACA) is a national nonprofit organization serving the broader paddling public by providing education related to all aspects of paddling; stewardship support to help protect paddling environments; and sanctioning of programs and events to promote paddlesport competition, exploration and recreation.

All of our guides undergo rigorous training in paddling technique, proper gear, safety, rescues, trip planning and much more, resulting in certification as ACA Instructors.
