    Frequently asked questions about this tour.

    What is the Booking/Cancellation Policy?

    When you book your kayak rental we reserve your parties spot and do not let others book it. A $15/person deposit is taken and your reservation request is reviewed to make sure everything is in order for you to have the best experience possible. Upon confirmation you will be charged the balance and will receive a confirmation email with tour details.

    Cancellations can be made up to 48 hours of your tour for a refund minus the deposit. We are not equipped to accept same day cancellations or no shows. Cancellations within 48 hours and no shows are responsible for full tour amount. If the tour is cancelled due to weather you will receive a full refund.

    All tour cancellations need to be made by phone at 904-500-8687. We can not accept cancellations through email or text to ensure we do not miss any guest updates.

    What happens when we cancel a tour due to weather?
    Full refund for tours cancelled due to weather. We always have an eye on the weather and will be in touch if it will affect your tour. Our coastal Florida weather is very isolated and forecasts are not very accurate until just hours ahead. If your tour will be impacted by the weather we will be in touch with updates. We will ask if there is another day you would like to tour with us, if not, you will receive a full refund.
    Where do we meet for Lofton Creek Kayak Rental?

    We meet at the Lofton Creek Waterway at the Melton Nelson Boat ramp at 463540 S.R. 200, Yulee, FL 32097. The best GPS address to use is Melton Nelson Boat Ramp, Yulee, FL 32097.

    What happens after we book a tour?

    We get to work preparing for your adventure and you receive two emails. First a receipt and once your booking is confirmed (meaning you are good to go) you will receive a second confirmation email with meeting address and other important details about your rental. Be sure to read your confirmation email for all tour information including meeting time and location.

    What is the youngest or oldest age for self guided kayak rental?

    It is up to the parents discretion as to how long their young child will be comfortable. Two years old is about the youngest we have taken on the Lofton Creek Kayak Tour. There is not a max age. For Lofton Creek we recommend kayakers to be at least 15 years of age to paddle their own single kayak. For children 14 and below we recommend pairing them in a tandem with an adult or other confident paddler.

    Can we rearrange the type of kayaks we ordered once we are at the waterway?

    No. We prepare the day before for your tour and will be arriving with a preloaded trailer at the waterway. We load exactly the gear we need for the tour and will have only what was ordered. If boat type, count, or participant number needs to be updated please do so by calling 904-500-8687.

    What do we wear for Lofton Creek Kayak Rental?
    Wear comfortable clothes for the day’s weather, for being on the water, and that may get a little wet. Some type of water shoe is best but if you only have sneakers, that is fine too. Our Lofton Creek tour is launched from a cement boat ramp where you can step into kayak with minimal water contact.
    How long is the self guided kayak rental?

    We will deliver your kayak and equipment to the Lofton Creek waterway.  You will have 2.5 hours to enjoy your time on the water.  Your guide will help you launch and coordinate your kayak pickup. 

    Do we need to be early?
    Yes. For self guided kayak rentals please plan on meeting 15 minutes before your meeting time so guide will be able to give you a short orientation before helping you launch.
    Do you have Single or Tandem Kayaks?
    Both single or tandem (2 person) kayaks are available for your tour. If you have beginner kayakers in your group we recommend pairing them in a tandem with a confident paddler. We recommend a tandem kayak for kids under 15.
