I did not know there was a kayak rental place so close to Foley/Gulf Shores beach area. I found BeachnRiverKayakRental on the web. Their website is currently down but they have a Facebook page. I inquired and left a phone message early in the day before I started my trip from home. This is a Mom and Pop operation so... More

Our group of 6 including two teen girls, 2 nine year old boys and 2 adults- none of us had ever kayaked- but is was THE favorite activity for all of us! The owner was super friendly and made us feel confident to navigate the Bon Secour on our own. We made it to the half way point- 2.5 miles... More

My husband and I took our 17 yr old granddaughter and had a nice time. We took our lunch, and pulled our ocean kayaks out of the river to have a break. Very peaceful and serene. I was very apprehensive as I do not swim. The water is very shallow, and the kayaks are easy to row. We will return... More

This was a great adventure. my family really enjoyed it. Started out at the beginning of the Ben Secour River which was about 20 feet wide and by the time we got to our half way point it was about 300 feet wide. river had a great temperature for a hot day. Depth, I would say, was not more than... More

Reserve your trip at least one day ahead with this Mom n' Pop business as they have an answering machine and return calls the night before your trip. Wear your swim suit and long sleeve sun shirt if possible. Hat a must. Sunglasses strongly recommend. Bring a water proof bag for your camera and lunch. There is no food or... More

Took my wife and kids. None had kayaking experience. Ocean kayaks made for being more stable helped. They loved it. Be prepared to have to seek shelter from a heavy rain shower in a covered boat slip. People around there dont usually mind that. Dont do the beach the whole time your in Gulf Coast go kayak Bon Secour

I want to thank Beachin Betty and River Rick for a wonderful trip on the Bon Secour River! Rick explained everything very clearly and happily answered our questions. My sister and I launched at 9am on Saturday of Labor Day weekend. The launch site is crystal clear spring water with a sandy bottom - just beautiful! The kayaks were very... More

Hooked on Kayaking now! You can really tell the husband and wife team love what they do and want to share it with others. This is a self guided tour in which they give you directions before heading out. We were lucky enough to see a dolphin near the end of our route; what an absolutely amazing experience!

We just completed our kayak trip and it was great. We have a 5 and a 7 year old and we all enjoyed it. We had two double kayaks (one kid per kayak). The owners were super nice. The river is really romantic at the beginning and slowly gets wider. There is a lot to wild life to see (fishes,... More

A great day with the family. Kayaking down the Bon Secour river was an unforgettable experience and the best way to experience and appreciate the beauty of the area. Would definitely recommend this!
