Frequently Asked Kayak Questions

Are reservations required?

While reservations are not necessarily required, we highly recommend them since we have limited space on each tour and can not grantee we will have openings the day you walk i

Can I cancel my tour?

You may cancel your tour with a full refund up till 48 hours ahead of your scheduled tour time.

What days are you open?

We are open every day except Sunday, all through the year.

What time do you run tours?

We typically run tours and 9am and 1pm.

Is there an age limit?

We do not have an age limit for our kayak tours.  Smaller children are happy to ride with a parent, and we have two tandem kayaks for older kids who aren’t strong enough to paddle their own kayak.

When should I arrive for my reservation?

We recommend you arrive ten minutes prior to your tour time. Guests not checked in within twenty minutes of their scheduled time will be considered a “no show.”

What can I bring along on the kayak?

We recommend bringing water and swim attire.  Think about bringing a towel to dry off or for comfort while in the kayak.  Snacks are welcome too!

Is there rapids or white water?

Yes and no.  We kayak on flat water, and many of the areas we kayak on don’t even have boat traffic.  Our Cambrian Paddle does have swifter water through the rock formations and is a more advanced paddle.  If you are looking for white water, ask us about our Baraboo river trips!

What should I wear?

Please wear whatever is weather appropriate, but we recommend swim attire, sunscreen, and shoes that can get wet.

Do we go through deep water?

Our Cambrian paddle goes through the deeper parts of the river, but our Big Dells paddle goes through the shallower areas.  In either case your kayak guide will help you stay safe and teach the basics of kayaking.  Life jackets are always provided.

Do I really get free pictures?

Your guide will have a camera along on your adventure and will give you digital copies of all the pictures after your trip. This is compliments of your guide: there is no additional charge for pictures, but your guides are happy to accept gratuities for their guiding and photography.

Can I bring a camera?
