John is a licensed outdoor guide, certified in wilderness first aid and holds certifications in fitness and sports nuitrition. It's Norris Paddling Adventures' goal to teach the sport of paddling and encourage fitness and respect for the environment. We have recreational kayaks, high-performance kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and plenty of PFDs for a fun, safe experience on Lake Norris, one of Tennessee's most pristine and cleanest lakes. For a peaceful and relaxing paddle, email us and request an evening or early morning tour when the lake is smooth as glass. For those of you with children under the age of 12, we offer PaddleTime In the Cove for 30 minutes of paddle fun on a paddle board.
