Choose from Three Options

  • $65 for a half-day kayak tour for two (a $130 value)
  • $109 for a full-day kayak tour for two (a $240 value)
  • $75 for a sunset and moonlight kayak tour for two (a $150 value)<p>

Certified instructors lead each tour by kicking the day off with an orientation session and game of kayak ultimate frisbee. On half-day excursions, kayakers explore the island’s beaches, spot wildlife, and use their paddles as giant spoons for giant snacks. Full-day trips extend the adventure into open-ocean waters and remote locations, pausing for a lunch picnic. Phosphorescent paddles glow in the dark during evening trips. Sunsets illuminate the beach as kayakers enjoy an hors d’oeuvre picnic and then paddle beneath the stars.<p>

Island Spirit Kayak

Along an Australian riverbank, a baby calf is being born, opening its eyes to the world for the first time. Carolyn “Chick” Dowd floats just 6 feet away and watches silently as the events unfold. At this moment, she discovers for the first time the powerful experiences kayaking can opportune, and plunges headfirst into the sport. Since this moment, Ms. Dowd has worked as an instructor in Thailand, Nova Scotia, and California, where she is also a member of San Francisco's national kayak polo team.

It wasn't just a love for kayaking that led Ms. Dowd to overcome a human's natural tendency to melt in water. When younger, she dreamed of being Julie, the cruise director from Love Boat. To that end, Island Spirit Kayak is the junction of Ms. Dowd's passions; a place that mixes fun activities with the natural surroundings of her hometown, Martha's Vineyard. Here, Ms. Dowd and her team of ACA-certified instructors can lead tours into tranquil waters or more advanced excursions toward the Aquinnah Cliffs, where sunrises paint warm colors across the exposed clay.

From beginners to experts, Ms. Dowd and her crew cater tours to everyone. Before each trip, they help people belly flop out of their comfort zones with a game of kayak ultimate frisbee, during which many feel compelled to jump out of the boat. The staff—which includes a school teacher—also has a soft spot in their hearts for children, welcoming little ones as young as 5 into kayaks.

Customer Reviews

Thanks for the great time! Jess was very easygoing and paced the excursion well. Grammy O was absolutely thrilled with the entire event- went way beyond her expectations. Noah & Christopher also thoroughly enjoyed it, and will put the idea for a great date night in their idea books for a few years from now. Christopher actually said it would be a nice way to Propose! He's 15! :-)
