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 an experience with us apart from the rest.

Life’s Short and Paddling’s Cool, so let’s go kayaking.
Papa Pete welcomes our fourth 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!
