We offer guided kayaking tours for individuals and groups as large as 40-guests. Group kayaking adventures are perfect for weddings, reunions, business meetings, team-building, wellness programs, church groups, school groups or for just getting away from it all with a few friends and letting-go.
If you’re traveling and don’t want to carry your kayak, or if you’ve paddled before, but don’t own your own boat, then we have boats and equipment available for you – and we can provide you with local trip planning details. If you’re not familiar with coastal kayaking, we suggest joining us on one of our many guided tours.

Jennifer and Pete Koerner opened Up The Creek Xpeditions in 1997 because they wanted to share the fun and joy of kayaking with as many people as possible. Kayaking is one of those things that may seem more difficult than it is. But Jennifer and Pete want to help people push aside those misconceptions and discover an empowering and enlightening new world available to those who paddle. One of the reasons we love kayaking so much, is that it allows us to get closer to nature than almost any other form of recreation. We make kayaking a fun, easy and safe experience for anyone wants to give it a try. We promise you’ll have a blast.

Papa Pete welcomes our third generation to our family paddling company. Our son, Jacob, has been paddling since he was 6-years-old and, following in his dad’s footsteps, our sweet grandson Madyx has had his first big kayak adventure (at 2-years-old) and he’s hooked. He also loves Stand-up Paddle Boarding and looks great in the Big Canoes!
We feel blessed to be sharing our passion for the outdoors and paddling with our guests. Our family would love to take you and yours paddling and show you not only why we love to paddle, but what sets us apart from the rest. These days, with so many outfitters to choose from, it’s important to know the difference.
