Equipment

All of our kayaks are tandem. If there is an odd number of people in your party we will pair someone from your party with someone from another party. A solo boat will only be used when there is an odd number of guests on the tour.

**Parties of 8 or more guests, camp groups, scouts, etc should call to inquire regarding special policies that apply to large groups. An 18% gratuity will automatically be processed.**
*No pets are allowed to be left on property while you are paddling and unfortunately they cannot join you on the water! Please plan ahead appropriately as we cannot refund if you show up with a pet.
