Frisco: Dillon Reservoir Guided Island Tour by Kayak

2. Frisco: Dillon Reservoir Guided Island Tour by Kayak

Set off on a relaxing and informative kayaking tour of the Dillon Reservoir. Paddle through Frisco Bay Marina, through Fish Hook Island and the Peninsula, to Pirates' Cove and Giberson Bay. Pick up insights into local history and more from your friendly guide. Your island tour starts on the Frisco beach located at the Frisco Bay Marina. During the meet and greet, you'll sign a waiver and receive a properly fitted and comfortable life jacket, paddle, and instruction. After a 15-minute paddle lesson, enjoy a leisurely paddle exiting Frisco Bay. Once you have found your rhythm and instruction is no longer needed, embark on a casual yet super informative paddle while taking in great views of the Williams Fork and Gore Ranges. Kayak along the shores of the Frisco Peninsula and take in impressive views of some of Colorado's tallest and most photographed mountains. Stories will begin to flow as you and your guides discuss the rich history throughout our county. Peaks such as Buffalo, Red, Ptarmigan, and Royal are all pointed out as everyone starts to realize how expansive yet attainable each peak might be. After splitting Fish Hook Island and the Peninsula you may have narrowed down tomorrow's hike with the help of expert input and have potentially already spotted bald eagles, ospreys, or even a moose. At this point, the group will cross the deepest channel at 70 feet deep. Paddling through the straight, it's amazing to think directly below you is an old town flooded after the construction of Dillon Dam in the 1960s. This story along with many others will be enjoyed all while taking in the amazing views and weather. Around halfway, take the chance to explore Pirate's Cove — a secluded and protected bay located inside a large island. This is one of the most popular photo destinations and is a great time to take a break and relax. From Pirate's Cove, paddle along the northern banks of Dillon spotting popular campgrounds and a great blue heron rookery. This rookery supports 10 to 15 nesting pairs of herons and depending on the time of year you might spot one of the newborns learning to fly. Two hours into the tour, kayak through Giberson Bay. This bay is fairly shallow with numerous islands offering the perfect habitat for moose, ducks, beavers, and more. Head back towards the Frisco Bay Marina. This is always the best time to discuss which restaurants to visit, and what trails to hike tomorrow.
