Where are ya'll located?
Our primary location is Crystal Lake. A HUGE enclosed oxbow quietly nestled between Downtown Jackson and Flowood. A few minutes from Pearl & Lakeland Drive. Calm water, lots of greenery, birds, wildlife, and PLENTY of room to explore.Perfect for beginners or seasoned paddlers.
We operate by appointment/reservation only. To set up your session send a text to (601) 953-7615 with your Name, Date of interest, & party size. Last minute or same day reservations are not always available so its best to book AT LEAST a day in advance. It you have a large party or need special accommodations you'll definitely need to make a reservation far ahead of time. Summer season and weekends are the busiest days so it is highly recommended to book those as early as possible. We do not accommodate walk-ups before our reserved guests, they will ALWAYS have first priority.
How long can we use the boats?
Those who have a little experience or are comfortable paddling unguided, can paddle up to 5* hours. That allows you to explore the entire area at your own pace. A guided/beginner tour session lasts an average of 1.5-2hrs. Be sure to mention whether you want to paddle alone or do a tour session when booking. There is no shuttling involved. Put in and takeout are at the same launch point, this makes the trip much easier for those looking for a quick adventure without having to commit to being on the water for hours and hours.
This is an OUTDOOR adventure. We urge our out-of-town guests, those booking for special occasions, and those with NO EXPERIENCE to check the forecast prior to making a reservation. We do our best to only conduct sessions only during favorable weather conditions. If there are storms, lightning, high winds, flood warnings, tornados, etc forecast for the time of your adventure, it may be canceled/rescheduled. We understand that some of you may not mind rain and risking your lives, but for the safety of our staff members, we will not have them fighting the elements on your behalf.
If it so happens to storm/rain during your tour session it may have to be cut short and we will return to land where it is safe for you and our staff. Safety is a priority and Mississippi weather can take a turn VERY quickly. Small boats and STORMS are not a good combination. Detailed weather information is provided when booking and noted on the online waiver. Once again, safety first!
Yes! We have a wide variety of kayaks to accommodate guests. To safely and comfortably accommodate all of our guests we do ask that you are honest about your weight and height so that we can adequately serve you. Majority of our kayaks can comfortably seat a single person up to 250lbs. We have other kayaks available that can comfortably seat a single person up to 275 lbs. We have few kayaks that can seat a single person up to 300lbs*. Please let us know when booking if any guest is close to or exceeds 250lbs so we can ensure that we have the appropriate equipment available for your arrival. Kayaks are much smaller than canoes so being comfortable and safe while paddling is important. Your comfort is important to us. Kayaks come in all sizes and widths. A 6ft'5in 250lb man and a 5ft4in 250lb woman would need different accommodations due to their dimensions. The more information your provide the better we can accommodate you!
Can we fish from the kayaks?
Yes, bring your own rod, reel, and bait!
