Welcome to UnPhiltered Kayaking's website. We are proud to be one of North Alabama's finest outdoor recreation companies providing a unique set of services that no other outfitter can match, from rentals of touring kayaks, to guided trips, and most importantly, American Canoe Association certified instruction in classes. We provide professional instruction for beginners and intermediate paddlers no one else in the area has the qualifications to offer.

Our company goal is simple: to get you, your family, and friends out on the water to enjoy the beauty this region has to offer. Safety is the heart of this business, and it is evidenced by guiding and instructing beginning paddlers from 6 to 70+ years old and providing professional classes to make existing paddlers safer and more skilled and efficient.

And for some real fun, get your co-workers, church groups, or a big group of friends together for our exclusive Aqua Bootcamp! A team-building day you will never forget! Go to the Aqua Boot Camp section in the services section for more info.

I encourage each of you to look into the services section of our website and book a trip, rentals or enroll in one of our classes.

Along with my certification as a pro instructor with the American Canoe Association (ACA), I am certified with the American Red Cross in Adult and Infant First Aid/CPR/AED. I am the only guide in the area that carries not only an advanced first aid kit, but also an AED. We would be honored to provide any of our services to you, your family, or friends and are grateful for your business.
