My hubby and I had an excellent kayaking and bat watching tour. Everything was managed well and we felt 100% taken care of. We would recommend this to all our family and friends. Great experience.

This was much better than seeing the bats from a riverboat! The guide was great too! He shared a lot of information on bats that make the trip more enjoyable. Don't forget to BYOB.

I would like to gift a family of three - mom, dad, and 12 year old boy. Do you have gift certificates? Would you recommend 2 or 3 boats? What would be the cost?

What is the maximum number that a kayak or can carry? Is it only 2? We are family of 4 but the youngest is only 3 year old and is a very active boy but can not swim yet. Not sure if it is safe to go with 3 year old boy? of is there anything similar such as paddle boat, etc. that can carry family of 4? Thank you.
