Our Equipment

EQUIPMENT MATTERS...

A kayak that is too short can argue with you about the direction you are trying to go. They are difficult to paddle straight and this can get very frustrating. A kayak that is too narrow can cause instability and will be more than happy to assist you into the water! A kayak that is too wide can be like trying to paddle a jon boat up a waterfall! If your looking for that kind of work out we recommend Crossfit! A poorly shaped design on the bottom of a kayak can cause an accumulation of all three issues: slow, unstable, and difficult to steer. One last thing that you should consider in a kayak is its comfort level. A poorly designed seat can make you turn back before you even get warmed up! Not only have we considered each and every one of these obstacles, we have learned through our own personal experience what is the best fit for our guest and the area we paddle! We want our guests to be as comfortable as there "sleep number" when paddling with us. Sure, it cost quite a bit more to provide the high quality equipment we offer, but we think it is well worth it when you are carefree and full of smiles on our tours!
