Adirondack Park Guided Canoe & Kayak Day Trips

Every Day mid-June - August

Our popular guided day trips are a nice way to tie a day of paddling into your Adirondack vacation. These trips also allow you to put together your own package trip. Our guided day trips vary in length. Our full day trips last all day and generally includes about 5 hrs of paddling. Half day trips include about 2-3 hrs of paddling and mini trips include up to 2 hrs of paddling.

  • Mini Day (MT) Trip: $59 per person
  • Half Day (HD) trip: $79 per person
  • Full Day (FD) Trip: $99 per person.

NOTE: Trip locations are subject to change. Please call. We will tailor the day to the first people that reserve for that day. Some days we have more than one trip so there may be options available. We will schedule a day to suit your schedule.

We include: Guide, transport and logistics, a great lunch (full day trips only), and a canoe or kayak - your choice (you may bring your own boat).

We only require a minimum of two people to run trips, so tell your friends!

Reservations may be made with payment in advance. If possible, we ask for 2 days notice when reserving.
