Kerry McKenzie and David White, husband and wife team, have been Lake and Ocean kayaking together for over 14 years and David has been at it for 25 years. They are both Level 2 ACA kayak instructors and have paddled many of the lakes, rivers, springs and oceans in the south east. The place they dearly love and paddle the most is Lake Jocassee. They know Lake Jocassee and all her nooks and crannies well-her beautiful landscape, the numerous large and small waterfalls, great places to swim and snorkel in the blue crystal-clear water, the diverse plants and critters and so much more! They also know how she can be temperamental throwing wind and rain into the gorges and making the lower basin dance with large waves and whitecaps. Kerry and David cannot express enough the importance of safety and preparation. They lead great workshops on self and assisted rescue, how to pack and prepare, how to paddle efficiently using various strokes, help identify the best kayak and paddle suited for an individual, and more. Kerry and David also lead kayak tours for folks from beginners to more experienced. Since many of the beautiful waterfalls and other special areas are a little out of range for some paddlers, they use a pontoon boat to carry paddlers and to tow 10 or more kayaks behind to get to areas where paddlers can explore Jocassee’s most beautiful and diverse places.
