Looking to try a new water sport? Why not rent a kayak and explore the beautiful ocean and wildlife that Galveston has to offer? There are numerous places to rent kayaks in Galveston.
Today we will talk about two of the best: Beach Town Tours and San Luis Pass Kayak. Both places will offer you an amazing kayaking experience that you will be sure to never forget.
How to Kayak
Before we talk about where to kayak, lets go over how to perform the activity first. I would recommend starting in calm water if you are a beginner. When getting in, make sure you are in shallow water as it makes the process of entering the kayak much easier.
When using the paddle, make sure your hands are centered in the middle. Then glide each side through the water to get moving. If you want to go faster, paddle with a much more rapid pace. I hope this makes your first time kayaking experience much more easier and enjoyable!
Beach Town Tours
Beach Town Tours offers you and your family personalized tours of Galveston. The minimum age to ride in a kayak is five years old. If you are the age of sixteen or over, you can ride a single kayak by yourself.
Tours quarter up to eight people. Tours are $50 per person for two hours. Not only are you going to have a blast, but you’re going to do it at a very affordable price! It is recommended you reserve your tour a couple weeks in advance as they do fill up at a rapid rate.
One of the tours they offer is a Kayaking Sunset Cruise. You will sail off into the bay a couple hours before sunset. Once you arrive you can relax and enjoy watching the beautiful day end.
I can personally recommend this tour. Sailing a kayak usually doesn’t require much strength, so everyone can have a blast no matter what size they are. Also, I saw so many Texas Flamingos and oysters throughout my tour which was so cool. Another package they offer is a
Birdwatching Kayak Tour. Galveston happens to be a migratory path for birds from all over the world such as North and Central America. This tour gives us another perspective of the importance that Galveston Island has to these birds and nature as a whole. I personally loved this tour because of the variety of birds that I saw.
It made me feel good that these birds had a reliable place to stay during their migration. My tour guide was also very knowledgeable about the area and all the birds.
All I can say is that I have no doubt in my mind that I will be back for another one of these marvelous kayaking tours! For more information about other tours, please visit their website linked below.
