Kayak Eco-Tours

Paddle with an Audubon Guide

Book an adventure for your social group, office retreat, family reunion, or other gathering. 

Look for birds and other wildlife as we glide across the water in tandem (two-seater) kayaks for 1.5-2 hours. We can accommodate up to 20 participants. 

Choose from two departure points on Joe Pool Lake:

  • Cedar Hill State Park (Cedar Hill) - Paddle in open water near the shoreline 
  • Loyd Park (Grand Prairie) - Cross a bit of open water, pass a couple of islands and head up the winding, shaded waters of Walnut Creek. 

Registration includes park entrance fees and use of kayaks, life vests, and binoculars. We encourage carpooling when possible, as parking may be limited.

Both tours are round trip, returning to the launch point. The paddling route and distance are dependent on participants and conditions.

No kayaking experience is necessary. Minimum age is 8 years old. All minors must be accompanied by an adult capable of paddling a tandem kayak alone.

Pricing

$35 per person with a $350 minimum 
When all 20 spots are filled, get a $100 discount for a total of $600 (or $30 per person)

If you are looking for a customized program at a different location or with additional activities, we would love to talk to you about your interests.
