We hired kayaks and had the use of them for 24 hours just leaving them on the beach when we finished. No crime on KI apparently. Kayaking in American River was hard work going upstream into the wind but we had dolphins alongside us and getting back was a doddle. A fun experience.

While Kevin does lot of the kayaking out of American River, he was happy to accommodate us while we were out at Stokes Bay and take us out to Snelling Beach. The ride out to the beach was along a gorgeous backroad and when we reached the beautiful beach, we pretty much had it to ourselves. It was our first... More

We cannot rave more about our two-hour kayaking exploration of the coastline East of Snelling Beach with Kevin. Kevin, who is the new owner of this wonderful kayaking experience, is highly professional and a great guide. He took my girl-friend Amparo and I on an adventurous paddle half way to Stokes Bay and safely delivered us back to our husbands... More

Were we competent kayakers? Not since 1988! Could we swim - Yes! Scott was knowledgable and we learnt some of the history of KI, as well as seeinggreat scenery and beaut exercise. We had the best two hours, with two big stingrays doing a bit of a trick for us near Island Beach. The winds were strong but we pulled... More

Scott obviously knows the island well and he really looked after our family (aged 6 to 71). Being a mobile service they were able to change locations depending on weather conditions. We went on a windy day and yet Scott took us to a secluded and sheltered beach and we were not affected by the winds at all. We enjoyed... More

I've lived on KI for 7 years but have just seen a part of it I had never visited before. I went on a 2 hour kayaking trip with Cruising KI Kayaks and had the best time. They operate in a number of locations around the island - may daughter and I went on Pelican Lagoon near American River. Pelican... More
