Covid Procedures

For the safety or our customers and staff, Ayers Creek Adventures will continue with the following Covid-19 procedures in 2021.

  • We encourage you to call ahead or book online before visiting. In doing so we can have your equipment sanitized and ready to go.
  • Group size is limited to no more than 12 participants.
  • We have implemented a digital waiver system to enable you to sign our waiver via your smart phone or other device prior to arrival. You may sign the waiver here. If you have already completed the waiver you do not need to do so again. Just let us know you have previously signed, and we will verify your completed waiver.
  • We can accept credit card payment in advance over the phone or you may book online.  There is a small processing fee for online bookings.
  • We will also be accept payment by cash on site.
  • We sanitize all work surfaces between customers.
  • Please help us maintain safe social distancing standards by allowing at least 6 feet of space between your group and other groups that may be present at the same time.
  • Employees will wear face coverings when close contact with a client is required, such as check-in, fitting PFDs, and launching kayaks or paddle boards.  We request that our customers do the same. Once on the water it is fine to remove your face covering.
  • We will sanitize all equipment after each use.  If you prefer to use your own PFD and/or paddle we encourage you to do so.
  • Thank you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Q: I have never kayaked before. Do you provide instruction for beginners?

    A: Yes. Nearly 80% of our customers have never kayaked. We provide basic instruction to ensure all paddlers can easily maneuver their kayak and paddle efficiently to conserve energy and maximize power. Paddling technique is more important than physical strength, and we’ll instruct you how to use your core strength as opposed to your bicep strength.

  • Q: Will the kayak flip over? Should I know how to do the Eskimo Roll?

    A: You do not need to know the Eskimo Roll. Our kayaks are flat bottom kayaks and are very stable. They will not roll over easily but can be flipped by leaning heavily to one side. When most people think of kayaking, they envision white water kayaks that are designed to roll. White water kayakers often wear waterproof skirts to prevent the boat from filling with water if they have to do an Eskimo Roll. Since our kayaks don’t roll over easily, waterproof skirts are not necessary. In fact, our kayaks have large open cockpits similar to canoes.

  • Q: How many people can get into one kayak?

    A: We have tandem kayaks designed to hold two people and single kayaks for individuals. Our single kayaks can support individuals weighing up to 265 lbs. Our tandem kayaks can support 450 lbs and can be converted to single kayaks for individuals weighing more than 265 lbs. We also have canoes that can hold 3 adults or 2 adults with 2 small children.

  • Q: Do your quoted prices include everything necessary for the trip such as the life jacket/personal flotation device (PFD) and paddle?

    A: Yes. Our prices include the PFD and paddle. You should bring your own water or you can purchase water from us if you like.

  • Q: At what age can children paddle their own boat?

    A: We’ve had children as young as eight years old paddle their own boat. This is a decision we often leave up to the parents. You know your child’s capabilities. Will they enjoy paddling and sitting in the boat for more than an hour? If you’re on a tour, will your child be able to stay with the group? Patience and their ability to follow instructions are more important than strength.

  • Q: Are mosquitoes or biting flies problematic?

    A: No. Even though mosquitoes and biting flies are common in the area, we rarely have a problem with them. You’re more likely to be bitten while standing in the grass on shore than while out paddling. You may want to bring your own bug spray just in case.

  • Q: Can I bring my dog?

    A: Yes, you can bring your dog if you call ahead and let us know. We want to avoid having numerous dogs on site all at once. Some people like to take their dogs swimming in the creek which is fine. We only ask that you rinse the boat down with a bailer (provided) if the boat gets muddy.

  • Q: Can we go swimming from the kayak?

    A: Yes, but getting back into the kayak after swimming can be challenging. Also the creek is shallow with a mud bottom so there are not many places conducive to swimming. If you’re comfortable that you can pull yourself back into the kayak, we’ll let you know the best place to take a dip.
