*For kayak tours, kids under 3’10” and 70 pounds sit in the middle hatch in a tandem kayak (minimum age of 3), between a front and back paddler from the same group.  For other children who will paddle in the front of back of the kayak,  we require a minimum age of 10 for paddling. Please call the shop if you have an experienced younger child or if you have any questions about this. We care about the comfort and safety of you and your children! If a kid is under 16 years old, an accompanying adult needs to be on the tour too or you can schedule a private tour.
