Kayak Amelia

March 22nd, 2012 by Deborah Gold

Kayak Amelia has been asking us to come out for an experience. So I finally got the chance today with my kids.  To say the least we had a blast.  My upper body got a work out and my eyes got a great view of the salt marsh and the animal life. My sons Rob & David were in one Kayak and Megan & I were in separate kayaks. Ray the leader and trainer of the group was awesome. Friendly and engaging but knew how to say things so that everyone understood, even the little ones. Safety first, very cool.  The staff was really friendly and very approachable. We got a quick lesson of the road so to speak and were off. A pretty big group on their Eco-Tour and we truly saw a lot. The three hour tour went by pretty quick and at the 1/2 way point we beached the kayaks and Ray passed out fabulous & huge chocolate chip cookies. You could go at your pace and there was always a staff person in front and in back. The Hoyt House will be putting some great outdoor packages together and we will be adding Kayak Amelia as the feature activity. I can’t wait to get out there again, in my own Kayak! Check them out at Kayak Amelia.
