Permitted Tour Guides

Private, Other, & Permitted Guided Tours


Guided tours are available for those who'd like to see the park with a knowledgeable guide, but want to do this on their own schedule and in smaller groups or individually. These tours are in addition to the regularly scheduled concession or ranger-led tours available in the park.

Services offered include fishing, photography, paddling, birdwatching, and eco tours. Tour guides are required to have authorization from the park ensuring they are licensed and insured businesses authorized to provide visitors additional options in exploring this wonderful resource. Please note that the National Park Service issues these commercial use authorizations, but does not provide any specific recommendations or assess the specific content of these tours through the current review process. You should interview the guide to ensure they'll meet your personal needs.
