Yellowstone Lake lies at the center of an immense caldera left behind by the collapse of the Yellowstone super-volcano during its last massive eruption 600,000 years ago. The volcanic activity continues to this day and there are many examples along the shores of the West Thumb, including geysers, hot springs, fumaroles, and boiling mud pots. We’ll paddle along a pine-fringed shoreline, explore the geothermal activity along the shore, paddle over underwater geysers, spot wildlife such as elk or bison, and stop for lunch at a secluded beach along the way.
Seakayaks are easy to paddle, unobtrusive to wildlife, and leave no tracks behind. So even if you have never been in a kayak before, you will certainly want to do it again. No experience is necessary, every trip is expertly guided and suitable for guests of all ages and abilities. We teach you how to safely and properly control your kayak so you are able to relax and take in all of the natural beauty and magnificent wildlife of Yellowstone. We have both single and double kayaks available for you to enjoy all the fun of gliding quickly and quietly across high mountain lakes, spotting wildlife such as elk and bison, and paddling away from the crowds to parts of Yellowstone that few others get the chance to see!
