Grant Village: Yellowstone Lake Guided Sea Kayak Tour

1. Grant Village: Yellowstone Lake Guided Sea Kayak Tour

Beat the crowds and strong midday heat on a morning kayak tour of Yellowstone Lake starting from Grant Village. Take in breathtaking views of the West Thumb Geyser Basin and the Yellowstone Caldera as you paddle along the lake. Rise early for the best chances to spot wildlife and enjoy the still waters. Meet the guide at the Grant Village Marina and gear up with a kayak, paddle, and life jacket. Dip your blade into the waters above Yellowstone’s supervolcano. Listen to tales of native peoples and wildlife from your guide and admire the West Thumb Geyser Basin in Yellowstone from the water. After your paddle, sit down at a scenic spot on the shores of Yellowstone Lake for a hot drink and lunch.

Yellowstone: Private Lewis Lake Fishing Trip From Jackson

2. Yellowstone: Private Lewis Lake Fishing Trip From Jackson

Benefit from pick-up at your lodging in Jackson or Teton Village, or make your own way to the boat dock at Lewis Lake in Yellowstone National Park for a day of fishing for trout. Start with a 1.5-hour drive north through the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, and stop to pick up your fishing license en route to Lewis Lake (you can also get one in advance from the Visitor Center in Jackson, or at any of the ranger stations in Yellowstone National Park). Upon arrival, discover a chain of lakes, consisting of Lewis and Shoshone lakes, connected by about a mile of river known as the "Lewis/Shoshone Channel." While every trip is different, your guides will generally spend some time on Lewis Lake, as well as row you up the channel for more fishing opportunities. Depending on your group, you also will have the chance to disembark and hike further up the channel to wade fish in the fantastic water! Dry fly fishing, streamer fishing and spin cast fishing are all possible throughout the day, and all equipment is provided for your convenience. Feel free to bring any appropriate equipment that you like in addition, but please note that no bait, no lead, 1 hook per lure and barbless hooks only are permitted in Yellowstone National Park.  Native trout will be released back into the water alive, but you will have the opportunity to keep any lake trout, along with brown trout on occasion. Your guides will try to get you back on the road by 16:00, getting you back to Jackson by 18:00. However, departure and return times can be flexible if needed.
