What a great team we have!  Energetic, friendly and supportive, our band of dedicated guides will provide you with all the necessary equipment, tutelage and attitude to have a special day on the Presa Allende. Lessons, if you have no experience, will take place on the shoreline and in then in the initial stages of the paddle. Through the time on the water, we will be sure to offer tips to improve your technique. Those with previous training may still feel the need to brush up their skill set. Let’s have some fun! 

Our founder, Mike Lambert, was the energetic visionary of Amigos de la Presa. With the creation of his original boating club in Pittsburgh, Pa., he had all the motivation and expertise necessary to start another rowing and paddling group here in San Miguel de Allende. That was well nearly two decades ago. Over that time Mike was instrumental in creating many of our current programs, both in the water and with regard to the conservation of our local watershed. We continue to tip our hat to Mr. Lambert, now residing in West Virginia. My best guess is that he is rowing right now.
