About BeachnRiver Canoe and Kayak Rentals
A paddle from BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals self-guided tour begins at the Bon Secour River --- a river rich with history, wildlife and plenty of photo opportunities. You embark, then return, to a tree-shaded, privately-owned white-sand beach launch. As captain of your own Eco Tour, you choose where to explore in Single or Double Sit-on-Top Recreational kayaks. You will paddle through a long stretch of shady, "still" water (meaning free of currents,wind and wakes) observing native flora and wildlife such as turtles, cormorants, pelicans, mullet and occasionally dolphins. In a typical three-hour paddle you will also observe a unique river culture that showcases tree houses, festive personal docks and homes ranging from "river shacks" to Southern Gothic mansions. It is possible to purchase freshly-caught shrimp directly from a shrimper docked outside his home! This kayak tour appeals to beginners and independent folks who yearn to experience a water sport seeking uniqueness and tranquility.

Sorry if you already have an answer, we paid $35 single,$75 tandem for 8 hrs. You go out on your own so mileage is totally up to you. Great deal if you plan on staying out for a while.

You may have to speak with the owner, but he does have 2 person kayaks that I'm assuming you could put both kids in no problem. I would just call and ask. He's really the nicest guy!
