I was a little intimidated by never having kayaked, but this was super easy. The instructor explained the kayaking techniques, foot controls, and safety. The views were amazing and the weather was great. It was late enough in the fall that the eagles had already migrated, but that didn't matter. I recommend the earlier tours because the wind picks up... More

We took the 2.5 hour Island Tour on a Monday morning. The weather was perfect. This was our first kayaking adventure with a guide or any type of instruction and it was so worth it! Kyle was a great guide and interacted well with everyone on the tour. He spotted and pointed out the three month old bald eagle on... More

I highly recommend booking a trip with Kayak Lake Dillon. Kyle was very kind and recommended that we take the earlier trip at 9am instead of 12pm. It was a great suggestion, and we were appreciative that we didn't have to brave the afternoon winds! Jared was our guide, and he was extremely helpful and informative, but hands off at... More

This was an enjoyable morning of viewing nature around Lake Dillon. Our guide was informative and friendly. The kayaking was easy and provided the right amount of exercise such that we weren't exhausted but worked up an appetite for lunch in town. This was a nice change from all the hiking the area offers. Our entire group of six enjoyed... More

Hubby and I have used this service and never been disappointed (unless they're sold out) as everyone is very helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. Paying, vests and paddles, and launching your kayak. Give lots of great information on where to kayak and what to look for. Also, tips on how to make is a great experience on the... More

Wow - what a great time we all had on our Kayak tour! The weather was perfect, the guide was knowledgeable and fun and the whole experience was worth every penny! I was a bit concerned that 2 1/2 hours would be too long, but it went by so fast! I'm thinking of booking another one before the end of... More

My teenage daughter and I did the 2 1/2 hours morning tour and absolutely loved it. Our group had about 6 kayaks plus the instructor with his kayak. Was nice to have a small group ! We got some great advise and instruction before we got on the lake so even somebody who never has done kayaking can get the... More
