Overview

Our goal at Coastal Kayak Charters is to provide fun, safe, and informative kayak tours with an environmentally focused approach. We are an owner operated company offering those in the area the opportunity to get out and satisfy their adventurous side. Inspired by our love of kayaking and the marine environment, we have taken our own experiences as tour guides, environmental educators, and travelers to build a company that offers the kind of tours we would enjoy ourselves. We take pride in providing the best equipment of any company in the area combined with guides that have years of experience both locally and abroad to ensure a great time on the water. We truly love what we do and do our best to offer something other than the ordinary. All of our trips are designed for both beginners and experienced kayakers alike. We are open year-round and tours depart daily, weather permitting. We schedule our trips based on the most favorable tides for the day so tour times do vary.

Hi, we have had kids as young as three join on our tours, they usually go in a double with an adult or in a jump seat with both parents in the double kayak. When will you be visiting?
