As the only kayaking company who paddles through 2 separate geyser basins, one of which is not accessible by land, we want to show you a part of Yellowstone very few people ever get to experience. After an introduction to the history and geology of Yellowstone Lake, along with instruction on kayaking equipment and techniques, your guide will lead you around the shoreline to the West Thumb Geyser Basin where there are many geothermal features on land and under water we will explore from our kayaks. Many of these geothermal features on the lake are not accessible by any other means. We continue on to 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 we return the same way we came, following the shoreline and watching the wildlife as we casually make our way back to Grant Village, and to our vehicles around 2 or 3 in the afternoon.
Our day paddles meet at the marina in Grant Village, on the western edge of Yellowstone Lake at 9:00AM (after September 12 we start at 10am). Paddling 2½ miles each way, we’ll explore the rocky shores, looking for eagles fishing along the way. With several stops throughout the day, some days we see elk, moose, or bison as they come down to the lake for a drink, and maybe even otters playing in the lake. We supply all the necessary kayaking equipment, instruction on 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.
Let us show you an unforgettable Yellowstone experience!
