You deserve a good paddling!

Kayak Amelia is

the OFFICIAL outfitter for

Talbot Islands State Parks

--- sharing nature for 20 years ---

These protected, 'wild' lands are perfect for wildlife viewing and just getting away from it all. We also realize that these fragile ecosystems need to be protected from human encroachment. The best way to accomplish this is to get folks to spend time in the enviroment and learn the stories of the critters that live there.

What you see with your eyes ?,

you will treasure with your heart

Kayak Amelia has all the toys for your outdoor adventure!
