Alternate Options / Kayak Friends

I work on advance reservation, ( As do most other Kayak Tour Guides ) Yet many tourists don't plan ahead and call the day of, and want to go today. Sometimes you do get lucky and I am available, more often then not however you will find out I am a one man show and another family has booked me for the day. If possible I will schedule you for my next available opening. But often this date is beyond your vacation stay. I get it, the kids really wanted to go kayaking. Well we can't disappoint the kids. The outfitters below are proven performers whom I can confidently refer you to. If not they would not be listed here.
