*FAMILY OWNED AND FAMILY OPERATED.* Thank you for your interest in taking an adventure with us. Our family is eager and happy to help your family create lasting memories! We are Justin (Husband/Father/Lead Guide), Laurie (Wife/Mother/Office-Reservation Genius!), Kaleb (Son/Guide Assistant) and Kyle (Son/Office Assistant). We started J & L Kayaking in the summer of 2009 with very humble beginnings having only 2 kayaks! Since then we have grown to a full fleet of kayaks and paddleboards as well as a great staff of knowledgeable and experienced guides. J & L Kayaking's success can be contributed to our reputation and quality of service and equipment. Our company is founded and operated on strong moral values and we believe strongly in putting the best we can in everything we do. We feel so blessed to be sharing our passion of the outdoors and paddling sports with our guest. We would love to have you as our guest and we will strive to show you that there is a difference when it comes to J & L Kayaking!

My husband, myself, and our 7 year old did the Expedition tour with guide Amy. Her knowledge of all things ocean and marine wildlife blew us away! She was so friendly and knowledgable it made the trip so interesting, especially for my daughter. We saw so many neat things. Horseshoe crabs mating, cannon ball jellyfish, moon jellyfish (I hope I... More

My family kayaked to Waite's Island, about a 1.5 hour trip, then walked the beach and found tons of shells and wildlife. Our guide, Amy, was very informative and knowledgeable. Be forewarned, it is quite a bit of paddling. My daughter, who loves kayaking, was very unhappy the last half hour. They have shorter trips, as well as stand up... More

we really lucked out and got to be the first clients doing a paddle boarding lesson and tour at their new location at Little River Neck!! It was awesome and Justin was a great and patient teacher and guide. Even got some great photos sent to us. All for a very reasonable price!

This was one of my favorite kayaking adventures to date. My husband and I did the twilight tour with Justin. It was incredible! We arrived at the gorgeous property where we met Justin and Lori. Both of them are awesome! Lori provided us with top-notch customer service from the moment we first called. Then Justin took us to our launch... More

This is the first review I've left on Trip Advisor because we were that impressed with J and L Kayaks. This is an extremely intelligent, thorough and fun filled group to enjoy your eco-tour with. My fiance and I spent last evening kayaking 2 hours of pristine coastal waterways with minimal 'artificial' interaction. To find this type of pristine, in... More

We arranged for a birding river trip but found out at last minute that the trip was not going to be as advertised since the birds were not there. Laurie suggested another trip which was very pleasant and a great first trip for one of our participants. We have a fun experience and did actually get to see a few... More

My wife and I wanted to get off the beaten path and see a bit of nature that this area offers. J&L Kayak tours was the perfect way to do this. There were several others on the tour of all age groups and all including ourselves had the best time. Justin and Patrick were the best of guides and made... More

My sister and I took our wonderful mother on a kayaking adventure for Mother's Day. Justin was our instructor, and he had a very light hearted attitude and was very patient as he taught us important skills for kayaking our first time. Despite the windy conditions, we braved the current and had an awesome time! Too many thumbs up! Thank... More

When you have 9 students and 3 teacher what could be better than a day on the water! Thanks to Patrick for our great tour. The students enjoyed exploring the environment that they live in, and had a blast on the beach once we got to Watties Island. They are asking to do it again in the Fall! J &... More
