Enjoy a beautiful 3 hour guided paddle boarding adventure on the Kings River. Get closer to nature, get outside and go paddle boarding. The view is amazing from a stand up paddle board (SUP). You have the choice to sit or stand as all of our paddle boards can have a kayak style seat attached and our SUP paddles convert to kayak style paddles with 2 blades.

This is the perfect section of the Kings River for new paddlers, families with children and expreinced paddle boarders as well. Learn to paddle or improve your skills! This trip is perfect for all types of travelers to meet up with our certified paddle board guide instructors and other guests to paddle the river as a group.

This fun paddle boarding float is a clear water trip along gravel bars and through scenic wilderness. All our adventures include instruction from beginner to advanced. If you are not a paddle boarder yet, you will be after your tour!   We will start by going over safety tips, sizing your paddle and learn the best way to get on a board. Next, in a calm, clear water area, we get on the boards and get comfortable. We include paddling techniques, tips and instruction based on the needs of each paddler.  

On your tour you may paddle, swim, stand or just float sitting on the boards. You may see fish, birds and other wildlife.

Your guide will personally photograph and video your adventure. We are initially accepting bookings for up to 6 people and will expand to offering river trips for 10 to 12 people, or more, once we have additional paddle boards delivered and and our additional guides arrive for the summer. If you have a group larger than 6 people please call Sheree at 231-335-7278 or email her at tours@seadogecotours.com to plan a date for your adventure. Cell signals very however we will have Starlink this week and drive up the mountain each night to check our messages, until then. You can find is at the Campgrounds at the Kings River Outfitters launch site at Eagles Roost Campground 1st campsite with no number on the right. 

This Kings River Trip is 4.7 mile float which takes about 3 hours depending on water levels and the pace of the paddlers. If you would like to spend more time on the river, for example a longer lunch stop, additional play time swimming or exploring, snorkeling etc.. beyond what the rest of the people who booked the public tour that day have planned on, then please explore the options to book out the trip as a private trip for an additional fee based on the number in your party and how many paddle boards we have available. We can also split our 6 person tours into a 4 person and a 2 person if you prefer a private tour. Please call Sheree to see how we can accomodate you day on the river.

Plan on arriving around 10 am to shuttle your vehicle to the Farm and riding back to launch with the Kings River Outfitters Shuttle. We will launch after the vehicles have been moved and be on the water between 11 and 12.

We launch from Kings River Outfitters launch site at their Eagles Roost Campground just north west of Trigger Gap and Highway 221 and get out at The Farm which is  about 4.7 miles up river. This trip is dependent on the water levels so please call us 3 days before your tour to confirm water levels are adequate.  

If you have any questions, please call 231-335-7278 or eMail tours@seadogecotours.com

Trip fee includes the Shuttle Service Fee for Kings River Outfitters to shuttle you back from dropping your car off so it's waiting for you at the end of the tour plus an access fee for the Farm of $5 per person.*

We also offer Private Tours for 1 to 10 people with multiple guides for the optimum experience. Our Guide to guest ratio, of 1 guide for 4, people is based on our desire to offer you a premium river adventure experience and the ability of the paddlers, river conditions etc.
