Kayak through our amazing home with the Trinity River Audubon Center! Our guides provide all the equipment and instruction you need to get on the water for a two-hour kayak and/or canoe trip. You'll learn about the history of the river while you meander through the Great Trinity Forest. We transport you upstream to a launch point and guide you as you paddle back down the river. See a side of Dallas very few get to enjoy all while cruising past herons, egrets, beavers, turtles, river otters, and more!
