Tides and Weather
Kayaking in the Alsea Bay is dependent upon the tides. Please keep this in mind when planning your trip. Go with the flow – schedule your trip so that the current is going the same direction that you are, unless you are looking for a workout! Guided tours are scheduled around the daily tides.
Changes in Weather can create unsafe paddling conditions. The Kayak Shack Staff reserve the right to refuse service during unsafe paddling conditions. Any tour deposit will be refunded in this situation.
For more assistance in planning your kayaking adventure please call a Kayak Shack representative
