Ripple Effect Ecotours Uses the Finest Kayak Equipment
At Ripple Effect Ecotours, we take great pride in the quality of our tour locations, our guides, and our equipment. We have spared no expense in providing you with the best equipment available thus enhancing the quality of our tours through efficiency and comfort. Uniformity across the board!
On our paddling ecotours we use Necky Looksha "T" tandem kayaks. At over 18', these are the industry standard kayaks for any serious outfitter or expedition racer. No recreational kayaks here! These kayaks are designed to take you anywhere under any conditions gliding easily through our tranquil estuarine lagoons. We have found that this is essential for a comfortable and relaxing exploration. We also make available kayaks with a more spacious open-cockpit for anyone who may have mobility concerns. These kayaks are Old Town Dirigo Tandems. They are also used for our family tours to keep the younger kids close by their parents allowing 2 adults and a child to paddle together. Tandem kayaks reduce impact and are twice as efficient as single kayak allowing us to cover up to 5 miles even with a group of beginners......two people doing the work of one!
Aquabound Stingray paddles are used. These lightweight paddles really help to lighten the load and make for hours of easy paddling enjoyment!
Life Jackets-PFD's (Personal Flotation Device)
MTI "APF", All-Person-Fit life jackets are incredibly comfortable and breathable in the hot Florida sun. We avoid the most common complaint in the kayak tour industry. That is.........."moldy, stinky life jackets!" Ours are routinely washed and dried properly!
Join us and see that the outfitter can make all the difference in your personal experience!
