This is how it works!

$45 per single kayak for 3 hours.

$55 per tandem (2 people) Kayak for 3 hours.

And Group Rates are available with a 20% discount.

  We have single and tandem (2 people) kayaks.  We have 3 self-guided tours a day that leave from Bay Area Park located at 7500 Bay Area Blvd, Pasadena, TX.  We have an 8 am, an 11 am, and a 2 pm self-guided tour from our reservations or you can call and make your reservation for a specific time.  Paid reservations are required and group rates are available for 5 or more Kayaks.  A 20% dicount will be applied to your order and you can make those from our Group Reservations page or by using the promo code GROUPDISCOUNT at the checkout.

We are on call and operate through paid reservations.  Reservations can either be made over the phone or from the website.  We generally require at least 24-hour notice for our reservations from the website but you can call the same day to make a paid reservation over the phone if we have availability.  During our busy times we cannot always answer the phone.  We do not take reservations through voicemail, and reservations must be paid before you are completely booked and we cannot hold kayaks without a paid reservation.  We will do what we can to accommodate you if we are able to.

Alligator Safety is important. Knowing what to do will put you at ease.


Being safe on the water is very important to us.  In most cases common sense will lead the way for you but if you are not from here you may be a little nervous about our reptile friends in the bayous.  We have put together some information on American Alligator safety and some behaviors to watch for that will put your mind at ease.
