Kayaking past Geysers on Yellowstone Lake
Another beautiful day for our Yellowstone kayak tours. All our day paddles and sunset trips meet at the marina at Grant Village, on the western edge of Yellowstone Lake. Day paddles meet at 9:00am, and after a brief introduction to the area along with 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. On our full day paddles we continue on to the remote Potts geyser basin where we stop for a picnic lunch which we provide, and then walk around exploring this primitive geyser basin where there are no signs, no boardwalks and most importantly no other people. We then return the way we came arriving back to our vehicles anytime between 2 and 4 in the afternoon, depending on the group. Our sunset paddles are a bit shorter, meeting at 6:00pm and paddling over to the West Thumb Geyser Basin then returning to Grant Village without stopping around 9:00pm. Absolutely no previous experience is required, our guides will teach you everything you need to know. We have both single and double kayaks available. Drive time from West Yellowstone is about an hour and a half, or 2 hours from Jackson Hole, all through Grand Teton National Park.
