Look around our web site and you’ll quickly see the services and products we offer. Southwind Kayak Center Inc. has been teaching kayak lessons and leading tours since 1987. Over the years we have earned a reputation of excellence from both the local paddling community and the national kayaking industry. In 1993 we opened our retail store, the Kayak Center, which has one of the largest and most diverse inventories in North America. We maintain top professional standards in all our endeavors while having lots of fun running our business. As a result of our hard work and efficiency, and the great response of our customers, we have been growing steadily.
