About
Guided and unguided canoe and kayak rentals on the Escatawpa River. Our Escatawpa River trip is a 6-mile paddle with sandbars around every corner. The trip can be done in as little as a couple hours but usually people spend most of the day on the river. Guided kayak trips on the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta and Bartram Canoe Trail.
Mobile, Alabama

What a wonderful experience. We pulled up in our RV, and Bob met us at the meeting spot. We had two adults and two teenagers 17 and 11. We got in the back of Bobs truck and he drove us to where the kayaks were. The river was very peaceful and lovely to float down. It took us about 4 hours to float back down but we stopped many times to swim and hang out. We had such a lovely time! Bob was very nice and recommended a few spots to travel to. We had a great experience and would highly recommend!

Bob is a wonderful guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about the waterways, flora and fauna of the area. The trip was very peaceful and we enjoyed seeing rare birds, beautiful marsh views, and meditative stops to take it all in.

The shuttle service is unsafe. The expectations is that you ride in the back of a truck to get to the destination. There was no assistance of getting kayaks on or off the trailer. It’s a shame. The River was beautiful, but extremely unsafe shuttle. Please be warned.

I happen upon Bob Andrews of Sunshine Canoe rentals while feverishly calling kayaking outfitter listings trying to coordinate and book some kayak rentals. I feel extremely lucky that I happen to come across Bob in my planning as I now know he is the most knowledgeable and active within the kayak touring industry as well as with the entire Alabama Scenic Trail system. With Bob being a long time local and active within the Mobile-Tensaw Delta community we were able to get extensive knowledge about what platforms to choose and what trails to take based on our time frame, experience and agenda. Bob got us outfitted, made sure we know our route and set us off on an incredible adventure! From start to finish it was the perfect trip and we owe that to Bob and his passion for getting people on the water and into the wild....You cannot go wrong with Bob/Sunshine Canoe Rentals!!

I am writing this review because I have not only gone out with Bob on his guided trips, I have worked with him in my professional life to advance Alabama tourism. Over the last fifteen years, whether researching my publications or expanding the Alabama Scenic River Trail (I was its director for ten years) I depended upon Bob's knowledge to gain a grasp of the beauty and adventure to be found in the Mobile area. Bob's Sunshine Canoe Rentals is a one-stop shop for people wanting to enjoy north Florida, the Gulf of Mexico, Mobile Bay, Bay Minette, and the floating platforms of the Bartram Canoe Trail.
