This was my first time on a tidal stream in a kayak and I highly recommend it. River Rick was great and the Bon Secour river beautiful. Thanks for the victory pops, Rick!!!

We did some fun stuff in Gulf Shores, but none as fun as a family kayak trip down the Bon Secour. This is for sure a mom'n'pop place run by Rick who really loves this place and loves sharing it with others. His only goal...More

My husband and I took our 17 yr old granddaughter and had a nice time. We took our lunch, and pulled our ocean kayaks out of the river to have a break. Very peaceful and serene. I was very apprehensive as I do not swim....More

Sorry if you already have an answer, we paid $35 single,$75 tandem for 8 hrs. You go out on your own so mileage is totally up to you. Great deal if you plan on staying out for a while.
