The best place to kayak in Gulf Shores!

Take this self guided option for a relaxing morning gliding through the lagoon searching for local wildlife at your own pace! 

Please note: All tours and rentals are now done on Little Lagoon in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, Gulf Shores. Please do not use our online or Google Maps address…instead follow the link in your confirmation emails to the location.

Reservations are required.

This is our dream location with calm, protected, shallow waters, and is perfect for beginners and experienced alike. It is truly a hidden gem in Gulf Shores Alabama and located just a short drive from the Gulf State Park. We are the ONLY company legally permitted for commercial activity at this location.

Please also note: During summer months we recommend the 8 OR 9am time slot before the heat index gets too high. 

Guests enjoy a 1-1.5 hour SELF GUIDED kayak rental in Gulf Shores near the Gulf State Park at Little Lagoon. (We usually don’t mind if you keep the kayaks a little longer IF conditions are good, but in the hot Alabama sun, most people feel an hour is enough anyway). Enjoy the calm waters of this beautiful beach while kayaking with family and friends and looking over the amazing views. This location is a local best kept secret and away from the hustle and bustle of Gulf Shores proper.
