My favorite part was being in a kayak in Galveston bay with my daughter and taking in the beautiful scenery and nature!! Emily was a fantastic guide also! She was so knowledgeable and friendly! The painting was a special bonus too!

My favorite part of the trip was creating a watercolor while on the kayak. The guides made this a fun, unique, and informative experience. They were great about all of our questions and were very nice. If you want to do something totally different, give this a try. You won't regret it!

Started out with a short walk to the kayaks, learned a few basics on kayaking and safety then hit the water! The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The watercolor painting experience was unique and relaxing. Even if you aren’t an artist you’ll have a great time.

I planned a mother/son day for my son’s birthday. We had an excellent time! Delaney was super sweet, informative, and patient with us. I definitely recommend this for anyone looking to relax and enjoy nature for a bit.
