Betty and Rick arranged to meet us in the afternoon on the beautifully clear Wolf Creek. My husband, Mother (67), and I kayaked with ease while enjoying the tranquil creek, beautiful nature and wild life. This is family friendly kayaking with two nice owner/guides. If you want to get out on the water and enjoy nature, this is a great... More

We had a wonderful time kayaking the Spring Creek with Betty and Rick. We had the best November weather with blue skies and not a cloud in sight. We left 1:00 p.m. rather than the usual 11:00 a.m. to allow the weather to warm up a little and this was a good idea. We were a group of three 60... More

My family of four had a great time doing this. We made reservations for a day that turned out to be pretty stormy, but we drove out from Gulf Shores (about a 15 min drive) nonetheless, with our fingers crossed! River Rick met us and after waiting a bit for the rain to let up, told us that it just... More

We had a great time paddling around Bon Secour. Some of us had never been kayaking before and we kind of afraid. We felt very secure on the sit on top kayaks. They were easy to maneuver and the scenery was just gorgeous, especially if you go north in the more wooded part. It was wonderful and we'd love to... More

Ok so when you first read their website it seems like a lot of info to take and in and a little odd that they don't reveal their location. But the put in is actually at their house so I see the need for privacy. River Rick gave us a great description of the river, where to go and what... More

We took 3 of our kids and had an awesome time. They are very nice, accommodating people. We felt right at home from the time we pulled into the driveway. We were met by Rick, quickly did our paperwork and off we went there was no stress, rush or anything. He suggested some things to do while kayaking, gave us... More

Our family has been coming to Gulf Shores/OB for more than 15 years, but we have missed out! Kayaking the Bon Secour River is really incredible! The river is calm and peaceful. The view is constantly changing, so it's never dull or boring. The kayaks are easy to maneuver. This business is well run and organized. Rick was friendly and... More

Didn't use this guy for rental, but while kyaking I was subjected to the owner of business verbaling assulting other people kyaking. Will never tell anyone about this guy, except to tell them not to go there.

My wife and I thought this was just awesome. We have kayaked several times, but really liked the ones that these folks rent. They were very easy to maneuver. The river is very slow and meandering with beautiful scenery. We saw lots of wildlife - herons, turtles, osprey, pileated woodpeckers, fish. The owners, "River Rick" and "Beachin' Betty" are very...
