Do I need kayaking experience prior to an Adventure Kayak tour in Cocoa Beach?
No, you do not need kayaking experience, in fact, you do not even need to know how to swim! Many of our guests have not kayaked before. Upon your arrival, your kayak guide will give you a brief but thorough overview of kayaking as well as a safety lesson, and provide you with all of the required equipment for you to enjoy your kayaking tour. You will find this adventure quite rewarding, regardless of your skill level or age.

What should I bring on kayak trip?
Although not required, we recommend you bring the following items to make the most of your Adventure Kayak tour:

  • hat
  • sunglasses, polarized sunglasses are best.
  • sunscreen
  • binoculars
  • camera
  • proper attire for weather conditions
  • shoes you wouldn’t mind getting wet
  • a great attitude!

We will supply a dry bag for those goods that need to be kept dry.

Do you have age requirements for kayak tours with Adventure Kayak of Cocoa Beach? 
Adventure Kayak of Cocoa Beach provides fun for the whole family ages 4 and up.  If you are concerned with being “too old”, please contact us to discuss your physical abilities.

What are the physical limitations of kayaking with Adventure Kayak?
Anyone in average physical condition would be fine on an Adventure Kayak trip. The kayak tours we provide are not considered to be strenuous or physically demanding, and a high level of fitness is not required.  If you have any physical impairments that require special services, or have concerns about any special needs you or your group may have, please call us to discuss them at 321-480-8632.

How stable are the kayaks?
Adventure Kayak of Cocoa Beach offers both single and double person kayaks to choose from. We only purchase kayaks that are designed for comfort and safety, built to keep you dry! We offer narrow kayaks for the experienced kayaker and wider kayaks for beginners. All of the kayaks provide a stable environment, while offering a swift and easy to maneuver ride so you can enjoy the waterways of Cocoa Beach and the Indian River lagoon.

Should I “tip” my kayak tour guide?
Tipping is not required, however, offering a guide gratuity at the end of your trip is a pleasant way to show appreciation for outstanding service, fun times and smiling children. Guiding is a hospitality industry, much like a server at a restaurant. Our guides spend time with you, teaching you about our lagoon and wildlife while keeping you safe and creating an unforgettable adventure.

How far in advance should I make a reservation for an Adventure kayak tour?
Reservations are accepted up to 12 months in advance. As soon as you have decided on the type of tour and dates that you are interested in, you should book your reservation. Central Florida is known for it’s varying weather, so we recommend selecting a day early in your vacation, rather than waiting until the last day. That being said, you can still call us after 7 a.m. to join us on a same day kayak trip! During the summer months, the morning tours are often cooler and dryer.

Do you provide large group discounts? 
Yes, we do offer large group discounts for the nature kayak tours. Adventure Kayak Tours are perfect for corporate retreat, large family gathering or special events.
