Guided Kayak Tours

Guided Kayak Tours

A guided kayak tour is the perfect choice for a few hours of fun and excitement.  These tours make great outings and still leave plenty of time for other activities.  Whether you seek a stimulating activity, a chance to get outdoors or want to take your first step into the exciting world of kayaking, these half-day tours are a wonderful option.  Choose from one of the many half-day, guided kayak tours with Up The Creek; we offer a wide and varied selection so that you can return many times and never see the same thing twice. With the largest fleet and most professional guide staff in the area, we can safely accommodate children, beginners and groups as large as 40-paddlers on some of our guided kayak tours.

It is important to note that kayaking in the tidewater area is based strictly on tides and weather. Because of unfavorable tides or weather, some tours may not be possible on the day you wish to paddle. Therefore, the first step is picking the day you would like to go paddling and then we will check the tides for that day and let you know which tours are possible. Once you’ve picked a day and and we’ve decided on the tour location that will work on that day, all you have to do is book your adventure. Super Simple. You just need to know the When and How Many and we’ll do the rest for you.

Though some trips can be longer, our guided kayak tours generally consist of 2 – 2.5 hours of paddling in order to maximize fun while still staying comfortable.  Most of our tours are designed so we paddle with the current — providing for a relaxing pace.  Weather and wind can dramatically affect paddling conditions, and safety is our number one priority.  Trips will run unless high winds, lightning or other conditions arise that force cancellation.  All trips include:

  • Kayak, paddle and personal flotation device (PFD).
  • A pre-launch kayak instruction covering kayak fundamentals and paddle strokes.
  • Water and yummy snacks.
  • An experienced kayak guide leading the trip.  Guides are trained to assist customers in capsizes or other emergencies, and provide a wealth of knowledge about the area and environment.
  • All of our Lead Guides have been through ACA (American Canoe Association) Certifications, Skills Checks and Courses. For your safety the outfitter you choose should employ trained professional paddlers.

All tours meet at the kayak trip launch site or location unless otherwise noted.

When & How Many? Decide when you want to go kayaking. How many people might be in your group, including children?
