About your host

I'm a retired university administrator who has been lake kayaking for over 15 years. I've found peace and stress relief through kayaking, and have encountered many native and migrating birds. I would love to facilitate this experience for others, whether a seasoned kayaker or a beginner. I have also kayaked Texas waters of the Guadalupe & Colorado Rivers, Caddo Lake, the marshes at Matagorda Bay,…

What we’ll do

My home is one mile from Lake Bryan, where I'll set you up with one or two kayaks, paddles, and life jackets for your adventure on this 829 acre lake. Never kayaked before? I can show you the basics so you can get started! Lake Bryan is on a migratory path for many types of birds, including the Great American Pelican, and is an all around pleasant paddle, weather permitting.

What else you should know

This experience will depend upon the weather cooperating. Wear clothing made of nylon or other synthetics. Do not wear heavy clothes of natural fabrics. Under Armour type clothing is the best. A hat or ear cover is always a good idea, as well as sun glasses. Water shoes and dry box are needed.

I will provide transportation via a pickup truck to and from the Lake Bryan.
Outdoor gear
One or two kayaks, with accompanying paddles, and a life jacket for each boat, as required by Texas law.

Where you'll be

This entire experience is at Lake Bryan, Texas. The lake and park have played host to many events throughout the years including, mountain bike races, trail races, triathlons, boat races, circuses, and other special events. Blue herons abound around the lake, as well as egrets and owls. The most prevalent species in the lake are largemouth bass, channel catfish, and sunfish. It's also a great place for walking or running.
