Kayak Multi-Day Trips

Our fun and adventurous multi-day trips are led by experienced guides with an excellent guide-to-guest ratio.

You don't need any kayaking experience to participate in many of our trips as your guides are also talented instructors. Besides, a little enthusiasm and a sense of adventure go a long way! However, most people do find that they enjoy their multi-day trip more if they've had some previous kayaking instruction.

We recommend our Sea Kayaking 1, 2, and 3 series for a thorough introduction, or our Kayaking Basics to get the fundamentals quickly. Join us for a few hours or a few days!
