Lake Martin La Kayak Rentals Pack and Paddle Kayaking instructor Guide


Lake Martin and it’s Cypress Island Preserve attracts thousands of visitors from across the globe to see this fantastic wading bird rookery.  The way to experience this natural wonder best is in a kayak.  Quiet, Eco friendly, and able to get in places that normal tour boats can’t – a kayak is the perfect craft for this environment.

Our tours – conducted daily – guide you through a Cypress cathedral adorned with moss and overflowing with bird life.  You will witness some of the most beautiful areas of this 800 acre lake.  Our experienced guide will take the time to acquaint you with the lake and its inhabitants as you paddle.  As the afternoon turns to evening, and the sky turns from blue to shades of fuchsia and yellow then finally deep purple we will arrive back at our launch with memories that will last a lifetime.
