Are you a serious paddler looking for a seriously awesome kayaking vacation?  We get that, and that’s why we work so hard to make sure that you get the most out of your week of kayaking in Ecuador.  SWA owners and guides spend four months each winter paddling the tropical rivers of Ecuador, enjoying the warm weather, beautiful rainforest scenery and boofs galore.After so many years of paddling Ecuador’s rivers, we know each run at each water level ridiculously well, which means we ensure you get seven day of the best whitewater that Ecuador has to offer.  After all, we wrote The Kayaker’s Guide to Ecuador, so you know you’ll be in good hands.  Come join us!
