Sea Kayak Trip in Yellowstone Wyoming
Day Trip! Geyser Kayak Tour Our day paddles meet at the marina in Grant Village, on the western edge of Yellowstone Lake at 9:00AM. After a brief introduction to the area along with kayaking equipment and techniques, your guide will lead you around the shoreline to the WestThumb Geyser Basin where there are many geothermal features on land and under water we will explore from our kayaks. On our full day paddles we continue on past the remote Potts geyser basin, exploring this primitive geyser basin where there are no signs, no boardwalks and most importantly no other people. We stop at a secluded beach for a picnic lunch which we provide, then return the way we came arriving back at Grant Village around 3:00PM. Paddling 2½ miles each way, we’ll explore the rocky shores, looking for eagles fishing along the way. Some days we watch elk, moose, and bison as they come down to the lake for a drink, and smile at the otters playing in the lake. We supply all the necessary kayaking equipment, an introduction of paddling techniques, and a delicious lunch. We have both single and double kayaks available and no prior kayaking experience is required. Our trips can be enjoyed by people of every level of expertise, from novice to experienced.

Welcome to Yellowstone Geyser Kayak Tours!Enjoy the beauty of Sea Kayaking in Yellowstone by getting off the beaten path, on a single or multi-day backcountry sea kayak tour. For over 20 years we have been showing our guests the absolute best way to experience the natural wonders of Yellowstone National Park by kayaking away from the crowds on Yellowstone Lake or Lewis and Shoshone Lakes.Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America’s first national park, and one of the best inland paddling destinations in the world. The clear water and high mountain lakes of the greater Yellowstone area provide a truly unique kayaking experience. Yellowstone is home to a large variety of wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and elk. Preserved within Yellowstone is the largest concentration of active geysers in the world – approximately half of the world’s total. Paddling away from the crowds you will see a side of Yellowstone few ever do.No matter if it’s your first time in a kayak or your hundred and first, our experienced guides provide expert instruction and interpretation, and we provide the best in kayaks and equipment. Kayaking is like backpacking, with one notable exception: everything is carried in the kayak, not on your back! There are no trails to follow, so you can go anywhere there’s water. We travel in to areas open only to paddle craft where we can experience the amazing scenery and solitude of the high mountains, endless lodgepole forests, geothermal features, wildflower meadows, and the abundant wildlife in their native environment.Absolutely no prior kayaking experience is required, an experienced guide and instructor accompanies every trip. Sea kayaks are the most versatile, sea worthy, and efficient watercraft ever designed. Created by Native Americans hundreds of years ago, these kayaks are stable, fast, and easy to paddle.With half and full day outings up to 6-day wilderness trips, we combine safety, fun, and learning experiences with an appreciation for the natural environment. Yellowstone National Park never looks better than from the seat of a kayak!
