Cockenoe Island Tour | 4 Hours | $105

Pronounced "kah-KEE-nee", this crescent-shaped oasis is located one mile from the Westport coast and is one of the more popular destinations along the Norwalk Island chain. This half-day guided tour is suitable for candidates with a little or no paddling experience and is a great way to experience the open waters of the Long Island Sound. We'll depart from the Saugatuck boat launch, have a brief paddle lesson and make our way south toward Cockenoe Island. We'll land on one of the island's many beaches for a quick break before retracing our steps back to explore Grays Creek and finally return to the launch. This tour departs from the Saugatuck River State boat launch at 12:30 PM and returns around 4:30 PM. Clients are encouraged to use one of our single touring kayaks as they are sized to fit, very stable and ideal for paddlers of all skill levels.

Sunset Tour | 2.5 Hours | $75

Kayaking at dusk is one of the most unique ways to witness the amazing transition that happens at day's end. Whether we're watching shore birds feed, hearing schools of baitfish jump, or witnessing the sky and water colors change, this one has date night written all over it. You'll definitely want to bring a camera along, as the setting sun will provide dramatic lighting across the Long Island Sound. In this two-hour very casual paddle, we'll begin with a quick introduction to kayak strokes then head down the river towards the open waters of the Long Island Sound. Off the shore of Compo beach, we'll raft up for a paddle break, take a few photos and soak up the dimming light across the Norwalk Island Chain. Finally, we'll utilize the twilight hour to ease our kayaks back up the Saugatuck River and return to the launch. No experience is necessary.

Full Moon Tour | 3 Hours | $90

By far one of our favorites, this three-hour paddle takes advantage of the full moon's light and provides a truly memorable outing. We'll begin our tour with a quick lesson and paddle south along the protected shoreline of the Saugatuck River. As we approach the Long Island Sound, we'll witness the sun descend and the moonrise. As it climbs above the horizon, and depending on the tide, Grays Creek, Burritt Cove and Bermuda Lagoon are all possibilities for exploration. You'll be pleasantly surprised to see the strength of the shadows being thrown well after the sun has set. Finally, we'll meander back to the boat launch seeing everything in the river as clear as day. The full moon tour is offered on two nights every month and no experience is required.
