Kids & PaddlesportsChildren from the age of 10 and up may be in their own kayak during the Indian River Trips depending on the their height, weight and ability to paddle for 2 hours. We have had children as young as 4 go along with parents in a sit on top, canoe or in the 12.5 Ultimate Angler fishing kayak for example. Kayaking on calm days is possible on the Indian River, on the Indian River Spreads just before the river enters Mullett Lake, and on Burt Lake where the water remains shallow for a long time. Paddleboards, especially the 13′-2″ Versa Board from Liquid Logic, are great for a parent and child together, even to smaller children. The Sturgeon River can be hazardous and kids under the age of 10 are generally not able to take that trip with us.paddle board - imageDeVoe Beach or City Beach on Burt Lake it is a great place to rent a kayak, or stand up paddle board (SUP) for families with young children. You can rent for 2 hours for $25, 4 hours for $40.  Parents can feel comfortable here watching their kids learn to maneuver the boats because the water is very shallow for a great distance from shore and the swimming area goes out along way as well. Often parents rent the tandem sit on top Deuce Coupe and take the younger child with them. We have planned trips where 1 child will paddle a single kayak for a while and the other sibling will go in the tandem with the parent or an older sibling, then at some point int he trip they can switch boats. In this way no one gets too tired out. They also get to try 2 different types of boats. All of our kayak trips are custom and we decide the best scenario once we have met the children and their parents because physical ability and maturity level may vary. Please feel free to call ahead with questions about kayaking with young children.
