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!

Even for a first time kayaker the owners made sure that we had a great experience. They showed us the basics and off we were. It was great to be on our own. You can explore anywhere that you wish. The scenery is beautiful and it is a great escape from the crowded beaches and other attractions. The owners were... More

Having spent the 4th in Gulf Shores and on the beach constantly surrounded by hundreds of people, to escape into the serene waters of the Bon Secour River, provided a much needed escape. During our 4 hour trek morning of July 6th, I was surprised to only see 5 other people on the River that morning. The people on the... More

We were here in 2012 and found beachnriver (on trip advisor). When we planned to come back to orange beach again this year, this was the first thing we booked. We love the area.....peaceful beauty. We even saw a dolphin this trip!!! And we could not ask for better hosts! When you get back, they have a basket full of... More

Rick and Betty are awesome! The river is perfect for a day away from the beach. The water is crystal clear and cold. Easy for the kids and fun for the adults. We had 8 in our group and all had a good time.
