Our policy regarding kids is that they are always welcome as long as they are safe. We can accomodate children as young as 3 Years old, but as any parent will tell you all children are different and so we must evaluate the ability of a young child to go kayaking on a case by case basis. A lot depends on the childs activity level. Obviously a very active child that can not sit still will not do well on a Kayak as they must remain seated the entire time the Kayak is on the water.
Generally speaking any child under 8 years of age would be on a Kayak with an adult (we have Kayaks with seats specifically designed for younger kids). Children over 8 years of age may be eligible to use one of our childrens Kayaks or may opt to ride with an adult on a Tandem (two person) Kayak. Again, we will evaluate every child on a case by case basis to ensure their comfort level and safety.
Kayaking is a fantastic family activity which provides hours of fun and a great way for families to spend quality time together. In addition to that, it provides the opportunity for children and adults alike to learn first hand about all the natural wonders that surround us, and are just waiting to be discovered.
We will be holding kids Kayak Camp in June at Bunche Beach in Fort Myers. Camps will be 9AM until noon Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Each session includes the whole week. Cost is $100 per session. We will be learning all about Kayaking from basic safety to paddling, and will take several trips on the Kayaks as well as learn about some of the wildlife we will see.
