A small fee of $2 per child, $3 per adult OR $5 per family for the day of kayaking will be charged to help insurance costs. Wrists bands will be given to denote kayaking "day ticket". Please book early to reserve space in a kayak and sailboat, so that we have enough kayaks and sailboats available.  Tickets will entitle 2 half hour rides at least, more if not enough interest.

It is asked that families please register upon arrival just to let us know who is there! Please note, no children will be able to kayak without an adult. Sailing is with qualified Captain anyway. However, there will be a few Kayaking Captains available to assist those children who wish to kayak but whose parents do not.

Hope to see you there! May we all have a Happy Christmas Season!
