What You Can Expect

Our low tide kayak tour is fun for the whole family! Your guide will teach you to throw a cast net and observe the local estuary (sea life). You’ll have a chance walk the sandbar in the middle of the Beaufort River, and you’ll learn how to crab and oyster in the local waters. If you’re lucky, maybe we’ll even see a dolphin or two. Low ride kayak tours depart at low tide which changes every day, so check with your guide for departure times!


Typical tours are 2 to 3 hours in length. If you’d like a shorter paddle, just let us know.
