The company will continue to offer weekend kayak tours from 8 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The program was initiated in October of last year as a limited-time opportunity, and has gained popularity since its inception.

To take part, kayakers are required to make a reservation, which cost $60 for two hours. The rental cost includes the kayak, paddle, life jacket, river shuttle and tour guide, for those who choose the guided-trip option.

River visitors can also choose to launch their own kayak and supply their own paddle and life jacket, however a reservation is still required. That option runs $15.

More information on River Walk kayak tours are available at the Mission Kayak website.
