East Matagorda Bay Marsh Kayak Tour

On this 2-3 hour tour we will paddle a loop trail through a winding maze of salt marsh out to Condo Cove on the edge of East Matagorda Bay. This is a great place to see birds and lots of fish hiding in the narrow passageways we will travel through.  This is one of our favorite places to paddle in the area.

Saint Mary’s Bayou Kayak Tour

You could spend all day exploring Saint Mary’s and all the different passageways.  We will spend 2-3 hours paddling through the bayou toward the edge of East Matagorda Bay and then making our way back to the put in site. This is great site to see birds and lots of fish.

Parker’s Cut Kayak Tour

On this tour we will paddle across the Colorado River to the earth dam in Parker’s Cut. We will make a 125 yard portage (using dollies of course!) and drop into a bayou on the edge of West Matagorda Bay near the Colorado River delta. Parker’s can be a great place to see birds, fish, pigs and possibly alligators. This tour takes 3-4 hours. Bring good footwear for the portage across. In the summer the grass can be very tall on the portage trail.

Stand up Paddle Board (SUP) Basics $65 per person 

Come learn the basics of Stand up Paddle Boarding at Jetty park on the Colorado River. This is a 1.5-2 hour class that will get you started in the sport. The focus is on showing you the basics while we paddle around at Jetty Park. Prices for SUP tours are all inclusive: SUP, paddle, PFD, & guide with safety equipment.
