We have kayaked twice with Beaufort Kayak Tours and both experiences were fantastic. Kim and David are passionate about the ecology of the region and truly enjoy sharing their knowledge of the area with you. They went out of their way to make sure my father, who has back issues, was comfortable through out the trip, which I really appreciated.... More

My wife, adult son, and I decided to spend a few days at the coast last week. I emailed Beaufort Kayak Tours on Wednesday and they worked hard to fit us into a trip that was already full for Saturday morning by adding a roof rack to their truck so they could carry a few extra boats. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Today was my third tour with Beaufort Kayak Tours. Each tour has been fantastic, informative, and well worth it! Their knowledge of the area and it's ecology is bottomless! I have gone with both my nieces and nephew (ages 10-13) and another adult, and they were wonderful with both the kids and adults.

Tranquility on the water on the 4th of July. I would not have thought possible. The equipment was great. The guides well prepared and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this trip if you like being outside, history, and ecology. I cannot wait to go back and do another tour with them.

Our guides explained in detail very interesting facts concerning the ecosystem of the island and the formation/reformation of barrier islands (this island in particular by reviewing the history of...
