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).

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!

Enjoyed the kayaking tour. Guide was very patient with those that had never been in one. Took us out for several hours and was very knowledgeable about wildlife and the area. I would go again but have my own kayaks now.

Fun! This was a blast! The tour guide, Patrick, was very knowledgeable and laid back. He made it great for us northern folk to learn about different species in the area, as well the topography and landscape of the region. The price was very reasonable as well. We would definitely do this again!

A Wounded Warrior and his family did the 3hr tour and were thrilled with the event. The guide was very professional and knowledgeable about the salt marshes and habitat. It was an unforgettable experience

We paddled to the island (about an hour), then Todd gave us a history lesson about the island, and sent us off to wander and shell for an hour, then he shepherded us back. We had all... More

Highly recommend the kayaking adventure to Waties Island! Our group of multiple skill levels had a wonderful time, and the tour guide was patient with those who were less experienced. Very informative on the island as well.

Trip was timed with the tide so that the current was always working with not against our progress in the kayaks.

He also was super helpful with first time kayakers - actively giving tips and guidance and taking some fun pics we can laugh about later. Trip - The trip itself was... More
