We also have the flexibility to accommodate paddlers in the morning or afternoon. 9:00 or 12:00 meeting times at our shop. Since we are not traveling as many miles on this trip as others, we like to paddle at a slower pace.

In total distance you’ll paddle about 6 miles. We offer double and triple kayaks. The triple kayaks are used as doubles or for folks with a child they feel too young or small to paddle by themselves, or someone with a physical disability that would render them unable to use a paddle.
