Classic Comfort Kayaking

Classic Comfort

Our kayaking camps can be basic or more comfortable, depending on your preference and budget. This photo shows a more deluxe” island camp with gas grill, tables, stools, lanterns, enabled by powerboat support. Let’s talk about your vision.

Powerboat Supported Kayak Trips

Powerboat Support

We can supply higher-end camping with our 18 ft powerboat, “EndorFIN” to allow more comfort and convenience than we can carry ourselves while kayaking (like lanterns, chairs/stools, etc & food coolers). We can even get you to more remote islands where your kayaks are waiting. Call for details and pricing to accommodate your vision.

The Culture of Camp

The Culture of Camp

There’s nothing like a fire under the stars, the sounds and smells of the tide and waves to remind you of your connections and the value of kayaking to a camp.

camp food

**Notes on Food

Cooking in camp is a traditional and enjoyable part of guiding … plus we gotta eat! But the menu that you hope for can vary from survival to spectacular. It’s your choice and depends on our goals for the trip. Your choices will influence pricing.  “Classic” camp food tends to be basic- it’s tasty as can be, but its also lightweight and compact, less perishable, less costly, and is less challenging to find. But there’s a lot to be said for the more gourmet or health focused menus, which have the opposite characteristics of “classic”, including cost and associated work. Therefore you and I will talk about the food you want, and figure costs accordingly. Estimate $15-25 each person/day for “classic” meals but up to $50 for higher end fare. An option is for you to shop and bring the food, which gives you complete control over selection and price.
