We also offer Guided Tours.  Our Guided Tours offer a tour of the bayou with an experienced guide.  Along the way you will see a variety of wildlife.  The Armand Bayou area is right in the path of a large migratory bird path.  There are many water birds, local birds, and seasonal birds passing through.  Alligators can be seen on occasion as well as other reptiles, fish, insects, and plants that make this estuary so vitally important to our area.  The type of tour and times change once in a while, so please check out the Guided Tour page for more specific information.

We generally operate on a first come first serve basis.  But, if you would like to secure a kayak for a particular time and date for the self-guided tours, you may do so on our reservations page.  Please read the requirements for reservations before contacting us.  If you want to book a guided tour please do so on the guided tours page.  We do not take reservations for the hourly kayak rentals, or paddle boarding rentals.

Make A Reservation


You will first meet us at our office at 4106 Nasa Parkway, EL Lago, TX. 77586.  Unless you are doing the guided tour or special event.  The next thing you will do is choose whether you want to rent a kayak or rent a paddle board.  After choosing which type of rental you would like to do, you will fill out your paper work.  When you’ve finished filling out the paper work and have paid, you will be fitted for life jackets.  If you are doing hourly rentals you will make your way down to the dock where you will be given an overview on how to properly paddle and a safety briefing.  Next you will be launched onto the water.  If you are doing the self guided trips, you will be loaded into one of our air conditioned vehicles and taken to your drop off location, or you will meet us there.  After you are done with your particular paddling rental you will meet us back at our office, or your predetermined pick up point.  Remember there is a $12 pick up fee per kayak if you choose to be picked up before making it back to our office.  Also keep in mind there is a limited number of places we can pick you up once you are in the bayou.  All of our trips but one are intended to have you paddle back to our office location.  We do not allow our customers to transport our kayaks, or take them to other locations.

Rules and regulations
Please pay attention to our rules, guidelines, and restrictions on our website. It is for your safety and the safety or our staff.

Weight limits on kayaks vary but are as follows. For single kayaks the weight limit is 350 lbs. For tandem kayaks the weight limit is 380 lbs for the combined weight of two people. This is due to the product specifications of our kayaks. All kayaks that are made have weight limitations.  The paddleboard limits are 225 lbs max weight. It is very important to be honest and not to exceed this weight limit. If you show up for your reservation and you are over the weight limitations, you will forfeit your reservation at your expense. So once again please make sure you do not exceed any of our limitations that are specified above or below. This is for your safety and for the longevity and structural integrity of our kayaks. Damage done to any kayaks due to the misuse or exceeding any limits explained will be at your expense.

Age limits for kayak use are 14 years old for single kayaks, and 10 years old for tandem kayaks and must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations and rentals will not be made for groups of minors who aren’t accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. Schools are the exception to this rule and other written permissions apply. So please do not make reservations for minors or groups of minors to take trips without their parents or guardians with them.

Customers will not transport our kayaks to other locations, and will paddle a route that has been agreed upon.  Any deviation in time, unless agreed upon, will result in additional charges.

Alcohol consumption is not allowed on our kayaks. Unfortunately a few bad apples have caused us to change our approach to this rule. Most importantly if you feel like your age, physical health, or mental condition may cause any harm to yourself or our staff please do not rent from us. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
We are a dog friendly company and you may bring your fur friends. Please make sure that their weight is taken into consideration. Large dogs may need to be considered 1 person, due to size limitations of kayaks, but we won’t charge for them. All dogs are free who are accompanied by a paying adult in a kayak.
