  • Kayaking and Paddle Boarding the Bogue Falaya - Diving Navarre, FL

    If you ever get the itch to go play in the water but can't rope anyone in, there's probably someone poking around Seal Sports who would love to join you.  We all work very hard to develop and hone our diving and paddling skills - so that we can play even harder!

    kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing bogue falaya, covington, louisianaLast weekend was a blast.  Several of us paddled down the Bogue Falaya on Saturday - just minutes away from Seal Sports and public launch spots!  We even found a rope swing.  Eventually we kayaked, paddle boarded, and canoed on down to the Chimes, revamped with some good food, and then paddled right back to the launch.  A simple and pleasant Saturday afternoon, getting to know one another and enjoying some good weather on the river.

    "Many of us started these adventures as strangers, but by the end we all belonged to the Seal Sports family… We had many laughs and memories made together this weekend and I'll remember them forever." - Bethany O'Malley


    Properly exhausted but not yet satiated, a small group of us managed to get on the road Sunday morning and head to Navarre Beach in Florida.  Three hours and a few cups of coffee later, and we were putting on our scuba gear!  The shallow beach dive was easy but very captivating.  We saw plenty of sea life, including a couple of octopuses.  Plenty of bottom time and the water was go pro, scuba diving with seal sportsperfect.  An entertaining drive home and a good night's sleep set up the week ahead the right way!


    Join us on our next adventure.  We've got everything you could need - let's explore the world around us.  Together!


    "I had a great time!  I'd definitely do it again." - Kyle Knight

  • Kayaking Cane Bayou

    St. Tammany Trace Bridge over Cane BayouSliding off the wet clay of the boat launch, the traffic sounds of Hwy 190 are soon muffled by the pine flatwoods and cypress forest that immediately surround us.   Our twin kayaks glide along with little encouragement from our paddles, slipping through the marshy water.  The St. Tammany Trace stretches over us as we coast under a wooden bridge and the water expands before us.  It’s 6 AM on a warm Friday morning in June, and though we have put our kayaks in water just a few yards from a major highway, Nature has transported us to a timeless, unchanged Louisiana.
