50% DISCOUNTS for Kayak Instructor Discount Week, NOV 26 – DEC 3- A week for the professionals to kayak Chile rivers, explore, get trained, and meet new friends. 

“Can I organize a trip for our guides past and present to do a Chile kayak trip? And how much would it cost?” Asked Colorado River School owner Lyle Phetteplace. Lyle had planned for him and partner Katie to paddle for fun the Claro Plus and Pucon Creek week trips. Then Lyle had this idea to invite all of his guides past and present for a kayak school reunion of sorts. PKR owner David Hughes thought for a moment, “How does 50% DISCOUNT sound?” David too liked the idea so much that he asked Lyle if the week could be dedicated and offered to other kayak school instructors worldwide.
