Expected Distance Paddled and Physical Requirements:
- 6-12 miles of paddling is typical on the Labyrinth Overnight tour.
- A 2 hour hike into Labyrinth is a main feature of this trip. The terrain is flat and the footing is generally not difficult, but there may be places that will take more effort. Expect to get wet and a bit muddy at the pull-out.
- This tour has a relaxed pace and is suitable for those who have a low to moderate level of physical fitness. This tour is suitable for children. Double kayaks are recommended for weaker and less experienced paddlers.
- For safety reasons, it is required that participants have enough upper body strength to re-enter a capsized kayak quickly, which is a bit more difficult than exiting the deep end of a pool without using a ladder. This is especially important in spring, when the water is cold. Participants should also have an average level of flexibility, otherwise getting into and out of a kayak will be difficult.
- While the specific itinerary will be determined by the ability and interests of the group and weather conditions, the most common itinerary is as follows: After meeting at the top of the ramp, you'll pack your belongings into the provided drybags and meet the motorboat shuttle. After motoring to the dropoff point and unloading the motorboat, there will be a brief orientation and you'll load up the kayaks. You'll be treated to sweeping views of Padre Bay on your way into Labrinth Canyon, working your way deeper into the narrows. You'll have opportunities to stretch your legs and explore the beautiful rock formations up close and go for a swim. You'll then go all the away to the end of the canyon and pull up the kayaks and procede on foot. This narrow canyon is amazing for exploring and photography. On day 2 you'll have opportunities to explore Labyrinth Bay futher and spot the location of the historic Crossing of the Father's on your way to scenic island overlook. After lunch the motorboat will shuttle you back to the marina.
- Most people find the camping experience very comforable, even novices. The desert is an ideal place to camp because there are generally no biting bugs (really!), comfortable night time temperatures, little chance of rain, spacious camps, and amazing skys. Our Thermarest Basecamp sleeping mats and Northface sleeping bags will give you a good night's rest. Our camp toilet is easy to use and hygenic. There is little reason to be scared of snakes or scorpions - they are rarely seen and easy to avoid with some simple precautions.
- There are bathroom facilities at the landing. Dry Bags available for rent upon availability.
