Kayak tours have concluded for 2016, we are in the process of replacing the fleet of kayaks to better your experience for 2017! Thank all of you that had joined us for a tour this summer.

Venture off the beaten path and you’ll discover ponds perfect for a paddle, streams teeming with bass and trout, spectacular views from mountains to valleys and an up close and personal look at the abundance of flora and fauna. Tap into some insider knowledge with a kayak tour- our guides will share their state and all it’s secrets.

Join one of our experienced tour guides to take a leisurely paddle at Lowell Lake State Park. Lowell Lake, only a short ride from the Stratton Village, is a great spot to view some of the Vermont wildlife and unusual plant life while paddling around the small islands. We provide the transportation, so leave everything to us and enjoy the adventure!


Adults    $50
Children up to 10 yrs old $30

Tours of less than 6 people $250 for the group

When preparing to join us for a tour we recommend bringing sunscreen, water, beach towel, appropriate footwear that can get wet, and maybe some bug spray. Lowell Lake has a small beach and when the weather permits swimming can be an option for you.

* Tours will be offered weekend mornings with a  9:15 am departure returning 12 pm.*

Tours for any other days dependent upon availability.
