p.s. In a nutshell, we’re seeking to invite “5-Star Guests” who are vacationing in and around the (L.A. – Lower Alabama!) Daphne, Fairhope, (also known as Alabama’s Eastern Shore area), Foley, Ft. Morgan,Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Mobile, Perdido Beach AL and Pensacola, Fl area to kayak from our property (that we love) and to show you our (Southern) “character,” extend to you our hospitality, while offering a (unique, 5-star) kayaking memory from BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals. So, if YOU are best described as “Laid-Back,” “Chilled,” “Respectful,” “Patient,” — and are considerate of children and elders, and (appreciate nature in its “natural state,” so wouldn’t dare litter!) are mindful of “rules” and private property — YOU are our “target” (5-star!) guest! So feel free (YOU have an open invitation!) to come on down to 18743 Keller Rd. in Foley 36535 (— just a few miles North of the Gulf Shores Al beaches!) from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily. “River Rick” will do his all-out best to help (put a smile on your face!) you achieve a (5-star) “Beachin’ Good Time” you can feel good braggin’ about!
BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals is open Seasonally. Our business is WEATHER DEPENDENT. Please review weather for BON SECOUR, AL area prior to arriving.
We reserve the right to close, unannounced, if storms predict Level 1 winds and above, SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES FOR BAYS/INLET WATERS are recommended, and/or if there have been flooding storms resulting in dangerous (swift-moving) water conditions. DO NOT ARRIVE “HOPING TO KAYAK” DURING A THUNDER/LIGHTENING STORM.
BeachnRiver Kayak Rental’s outgoing phone voicemail message will reflect most current (seasonal) open/closed info. NO CALLS WILL BE RETURNED during “closed” season (as stated on our informative, outgoing voicemail message). During “open” season, the outgoing phone message will encourage you to visit https://beachnriverkayakrentals.com — where you will find an answer to nearly every possible question.
Should you desire a return phone call — we don’t own cell phones, so we are unable to text — please SPEAK SLOWLY/CLEARLY (without loud background noise), leave a DETAILED MESSAGE with your query, and “River Rick” will return calls from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Kayaks are rented on First-Come/First-Served Basis — including Holiday(s) and Holiday Weeks.
NO RESERVATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNLESS CASH IS PAID IN FULL, NO EARLIER THAN 24-HR IN ADVANCE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS — regardless of circumstances.
We will not respond to emails or social media messages.
*** Again: BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals launches kayaking guests from privately-owned property. There is no public access or view of the river where guests will paddle from the launch location. No “tour” requests accepted.
In other words …
DO NOT ARRIVE WITH PRIVATELY-OWNED KAYAKS/PADDLEBOARDS. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LAUNCH FROM OUR PROPERTY — OR ANYWHERE NEAR OUR PROPERTY. ALL PROPERTY ALONG THE BON SECOUR RIVER IS PRIVATELY OWNED. PROPERTY OWNERS WILL CALL FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT TO CHARGE/ARREST FOR TRESPASSING.
