More questions?

Do I need to make a reservation?

No, but we can’t guarantee the equipment will be available when you want it without one.  Afternoons tend to be particularly popular so reservations are recommended.

How much does it cost?

Do I have to wear a life jacket?

For your safety we recommend LIFE JACKETS be worn at all time. Children under 13 are required by State Law to wear life jackets at all times. If you are older than 13, you must have the life jacket on and buckled when you leave the dock.  If you lose the life jacket, you will be required to pay for it.

Can I cancel my reservation?

You must cancel your kayak reservation 24 hours before your scheduled kayak trip to receive a full refund. Reservations canceled less than 24 hours before the scheduled trip will be charged in full.

What if the weather is bad?

SoundWaters reserves the right to cancel any trip due to weather conditions. High winds, heavy rain or imminent storms – we cancel for you – call us if you are not sure.  Note that the weather changes quickly in this region, storms forecasted frequently pass us by. For this reason we reserve the right to make a determination 1 hour prior to booking times. If we have to cancel because of weather we will refund your reservation in full.
