NJ Kayak Adventure Kayak Outfitter
Adventure In Your
Own Backyard since 2000
Hi, we are Carmen & Bill Stage owners and chief kayak instructors / guides of NJ Jersey Kayak. For fifteen years,
we have provided professional coastal sea kayak touring instruction and kayak adventure tours.
Our passion for the sport, the thrill of adventure, the joy of meeting new friends and sharing our extensive experience is our driving force.
It is our simple mission to pass on this joy and our years of experience to you in the hopes you make it a rewarding lifelong sport of adventure exploring too.
Our Slogin: "Adventure In Your Own Backyard."
For those with the "Adventourous Spirit," with or without previous coastal sea kayak experience, we have designed exciting opportunities to experience the Jersey Shore in a whole new perspective.
Begginer kayak courses will be offered at several locations local to us, Waretown, Barnegat and at times on LBI. Each provides access to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Widlife Refuge, EBF. All courses will be designed around prefered tides and time of day.
With preferred tides, Kayak instruction / tours are scheduled from morning 9:30 am to early afternoon 1:30pm.
The E.B.F stretches for some distance on both sides of Barnegat Bay and Little Egg. The main kayak instruction offering is the Barnegat Division of E.B.F and the preferred time is scheduled around a higher tide in the marsh which provides better panoramic views of wetlands besides water depth.
We launch from areas that one would find on their own as public docks, parks and beaches. Good training...If you where to pursue kayaking as a lifelong sport, you would need to find suitable launching areas too.
All necessary gear supplied as quality coastal sea touring kayak, PFD, quality paddle and with train, spray skirt.
Novice fees average $55-$65 for two hour tour / lesson.
For guests with previous coastal sea kayak experience, there are tours designed from (3-4 hrs) to (4-6 hrs). Fees average $75-$115 depending on time on water, travel to launch location and degree of difficulty.
Introduction To Coastal Sea Kayak Touring
All kayak instruction and tours are with advance appointment with minimum of one day notice. What makes your experience personalized and safe, is a 5 kayak limit on the water. With the possible use of four tandems, there can be any combination from 2 to 9 quests.
Historical Footnote: Since 2000, Carmen and I operated NJ Kayak from our waterfront location on Barnegat Bay, Barnegat but the time came to sell the property but not
We will continue to offer personalized customized coastal sea kayak experience from launch sites locally and throughout the Jersey shore.
