Enjoy the bayou on kayak or pedal boat!
The best way to explore the Pascagoula River and enjoy the outdoors is by kayak! Perfect for the first-time kayaker as well as experienced kayakers, you can paddle the bayou, enjoy the peaceful waters, and get up close to the natural world. Rent a kayak for a half day or bring your own! Makes a great adventure for friends, an outdoor date, or family outing.
Not ready for a kayak? How about a sturdy pedal boat for family exploration. The pedal boat will comfortably seat two adults and up to three children with a weight limit of 775 lbs. It also has a bimini top for those scorching summer days.
Rentals of kayaks or pedal boats must begin no later than 12 noon. Reserve the watercraft ahead of time by calling 228-475-0825. Kayak rental fee includes general admission to the center.
