Tours, Outings, and Camp:
Join our instructors for a sunset tour of the Great Island Estuary here in Beautiful Old Lyme, CT. After some basic instruction, we’ll take a paddle tour of the area and find a spot to watch the sunset out on our pristine waters. This is a great way to unwind from the day, relax, and meet new friends. We provide SUP’s, all the gear, and basic paddle instruction. You provide your beverage of choice to toast the sunset and celebrate the end of another long summer day on the beautiful Long Island Sound. We schedule our tours every weekend throughout the summer. We can also accommodate any evening of the week with a min. of 4 people. Call now to reserve your tour before the summer is gone and the snow is here!
Your group can take a short paddle out to the Island nature preserve, get out, explore and bring their own drinks, food or snack if desired (which we can help coordinate and facilitate). We can get a few on-water guides to join them and show them around, and take them on a tour of the CT river paddle trail here in Old Lyme.We have a fleet of kayaks, SUPs, and tandem kayaks, so we can offer a range of options for your group. We’d be happy to discuss prices and details if you’d like to give us a call, or if you provide your contact, we’d be happy to reach out as well. Our fleet of kayaks and SUPs can accommodate groups of up to 100 people and we can even arrange all your specific needs upon request. No two group outings are the same, so we work with you to customize your event to be the perfect day and an experience you will never forget. We offer several destination paddle trips on local waters that will make it easy and fun for your group to have an amazing time. Plan an outing for your group that will become a tradition for years to come!!
