will be asked for the approximate weights of the paddlers in order for us
to assign appropriate kayaks. Failure to supply an accurate weight
can result in a safety issue and Aardvark's cannot be held  responsible

Most of our boats are single place kayaks.  There are a limited number of
tandem kayaks available, however, the guide is always in his/her own single
boat. This is done for safety reasons.  The guide needs to be free to assist in
rescue situations. We have a limited number of high weight capacity kayaks.
Maximum Weight Limit for single kayaks is 250 lbs. We only have 4 Tandem
kayaks available for use on tours. Maximum load is 350 lbs.  Weight must be
relatively equally distributed.

Public & Private Tours are available.  A public tour is one where you may be
paired with other paddlers up to a maximum of 15 paddlers.  A private tour is
limited to those in your party only.  

Only private tours are available to parties with children age 12 and under.  We
offer both an abbreviated (Kid Friendly) family tour with a length of up to 2
hours as well as our standard private tour that can last up to 4 hours at your
discretion. Kid Friendly Family Tours at $65 pp are available
only to those with
children meeting the age criteria.

Children are welcome but expected to be well behaved and under control at all
times.  The guide has the right to terminate any tour based on behavior out of
respect for others on the water. No refunds are available. There is no age limit
and children under 3 are free when riding in a double kayak with an adult
parent or guardian.

All our trips are loop or circle routes meaning, they are
not float trips
downriver.  We are located in a coastal area affected by the tides so while
sometimes the water flows out, it also flows in. Currents are not strong so
that means you have to paddle to get where you're going.
