Kayaking Tour Rates & Other Services

The Basics

We do require advance reservations. You can phone, email or use our online registration. We will require a credit card at time of reservation. Once your reservation is made, you will receive an email confirmation with detailed directions to the launch site and a list of what to bring.

All trips are led by one or more of our trained Guides and Guide Assistants and do include basic paddling instruction and all kayaking gear.

Our Guides and Guide Assistants work very hard to provide a fun-filled, educational tour for all of our guests. Tips are welcomed and greatly appreciated. We can even add the tip to your credit card, just let us know.

We will offer flat water tours from April through October as weather permits.

Beginner Kayaking Instruction


We offer one and two day courses in covered kayak operation. These classes are for people who are interested in becoming comfortable and safe in covered kayaks in preparation for all day explorations.

First Day topics: basic equipment, boat design and fit, efficient paddling strokes, wet exit, and assisted rescues.

Second Day topics: hazards, map reading, solo rescue and rolling, navigation, towing, and ideas for local area trips.

The majority of both days are spent paddling and practicing on the water. The first day starts on a protected beach and remains in the immediate area. By the end of day one the class will have decided which natural area to tour on day two.

This class is best taken with both days in succession but we do allow you to take ‘one day at a time’. Both days of instruction cost $200/person. One day of class costs $100/person. Class size is limited to five students.

We also offer surf kayaking instruction, winter pool clinics, skills clinics, rolling, self, and assisted rescues, and an intro to kayaking class. Contact us for more details.
