What we're about

Welcome to Adventure People! This group is for everyone who loves to hike, kayak, rock climb, and anything that gets us outdoors. We have a great team of organizers who schedule local outdoor activities, social events, and weekend camping trips. We also do small group trips to destinations around the world.

Some of the things we've done include watching the Northern Lights in Iceland, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, rappelling down waterfalls in Costa Rica, trekking on a glacier in Argentina, hiking the W Trek in Chile, climbing a volcano in Hawaii, visiting the country's national parks, exploring the world's most spectacular caves in Vietnam, salsa dancing lessons in Cuba, and that's just a few.

Adventure People all have one thing in common, we want to travel the world and have fun doing it. We're explorers, not tourists. Regardless of where you go and what you do, it's the people you share the experience with that you'll remember the most. What you'll find in Adventure People is that we're a fun, active, adventurous, welcoming group of friends. By joining our community and participating in our local and international trips, you'll not only have a new group of friends but new travel companions with whom you'll want to share more experiences. That's why you'll always see repeat travelers on all of our trips!

Welcome, we look forward to meeting you!

The Galapagos Islands are a year-round destination, but our experts agree that the best time to visit the Galapagos Islands is during the shoulder seasons during the crossover between warm and cool seasons in May and November. The shifting currents mean changing food sources for animals which can result in interesting wildlife encounters. June marks the beginning of the cool season when the cool Humboldt and Peru currents from the south have overpowered the warm Panama current from the north. Temperatures are still warm, but not as hot and humid.

What to Expect in May/June in Galapagos:

  • Average Outdoor Temperatures: 68-82 degrees
  • Average water temperature: 74 degrees
  • Average Rainfall: 0.6 inches
  • North Seymour’s blue-footed boobies begin their courtship
  • Sea turtles are still hatching on Gardner Bay and Punta Cormorant
  • Most of marine iguanas’ eggs hatch from nests on Santa Cruz
  • Palo Santo trees begin to shed their foliage
  • Waved albatross on Espanola start laying their eggs
  • Ban-rumped storm petrels begin their first nesting period
  • Giant tortoises on Santa Cruz Island migrate from the highlands to the lowlands in search of suitable nesting places
  • Beginning of the nesting season of giant tortoises
  • The male magnificent frigatebirds on North Seymour start flaunting their red pouches
  • Southern migrant birds have started their journey toward the north and Galapagos is a rest stop for such birds
  • Some species of whales and dolphins also follow this pattern of migration
  • Groups of humpback whales that migrate up to equatorial latitudes along the coast of Ecuador can reach the Galapagos

Oh, Summer Days! Sunset Waterways Exploration of Houston Downtown Skyline

Summer can be killing, but it can also be fun
The trick is to stay cool, despite the hot, hot sun!

Join us for super fun guided kayaking tour in the cooling evening breeze at the end of a hot and humid summer day to explore the waterways of downtown Houston and enjoy the skyline from an angle that very few people get to experience.

Urban streetlights, glassy skyscrapers, bridges and traffic shine lights that reflect off the water creating a magic display of colors and shapes and sounds. As we glide into the dark, the whole event is going to be really fun and your day will catch a new meaning.

Share the evening and the experience!


Invite your family, call a friend or two, or a coworker or neighbor, or treat your date to a romantic paddle under the moon.

Night paddling can be very intriguing and also very relaxing!

We will start with on-land safety briefing and be on the water soon thereafter.

This is a family-friendly and beginner-friendly event. Strong kids ages 10 and up are welcome to attend accompanied by a parent.

Course: We will do a leisurely trip paddling for about 3 miles in one direction, then turn around. The total paddling itinerary is up to 6 miles or about 3 hours of paddling, depending on who is doing the paddling and who is enjoying the glide...

The trip can be shortened or lengthen depending on circumstances.

Equipment Rental Available With Guided Tour:

Solo kayaks are $100 each (+ additional gear and instruction)

Your feet will get wet, so wear water shoes (old snicker work best, or closed toed sandals; no flip-flops, no crocks, no rain boots). Wear outdoor, fast drying, non-cotton/synthetic clothing. Large brim hat helps with the sun and gloves protect your hands from developing blisters (cycling or workout gloves are ok).

$$ Fun Eco-Tour: Colorado River Geomorphology (Let's Kayak Columbus Loop)

Beason's Crossing Park

Fun Eco-Tour: Colorado River Geomorphology
Let's Kayak the Columbus Loop and look at rocks!

More than 850 miles long, the Texas Colorado River is the longest river to start and end in the same state and is the lifeblood of our state’s economy, our environment, our industry, our agriculture, and especially our lives as Texans.

Columbus Loop Kayaking Trail is a relatively short guided geomorphology and historical eco-tour only 6.5 miles or 3-4 hours of paddling with breaks.

This eco-tour is ideal for families with kids and for beginner paddlers that want to take their skills up a notch and experience a grander setting.

Awesome trip for those that enjoy history, geology, nature, serenity and adventures.

In addition to kayaking, we will discuss Texas history and geology. We will take a couple of breaks to look at rocks, river banks, flood plains, channel shape and dimensions, analyze bedrock and geomorphologic features associated with stream and floods.

Enjoy this wide, open, peaceful trail with a few rapids and multiple islands and sandy beaches great for picnicking. We will pass several cattle ranches and very few houses as we paddle.

Our river float will end at a place where the Texas Army under the leadership of General Sam Houston and the Mexican Army under the leadership of General Santa Ana crossed the Colorado river before their clash at San Jacinto.

Your trip leader - Constantin - is an accomplished master geologist and certified river kayak instructor. This is an awesome kayaking geomorphology field trip and you'll be in for a great learning experience.

Guided Kayak Eco-Tour: Explore Flooded Cypress Forest at Lake Charlotte


Lake Charlotte is the one of largest cypress tree swamp in Texas, part of a complex of at least four lakes that lie to the east of the Trinity River Delta. Hundreds of shorebirds are feeding on the shallow lake bottom. White ibises, herons, eagles, beavers, wild hogs, deer, snakes, and alligators call Lake Charlotte home.

Lake Charlotte was inhabited for hundreds of years by ancient Native
Americans whose diet include clam shells. These clams lived in the muddy bottoms of the lakes; they would be unflavored by modern standards. Clams were an important food source for the original inhabitants who consumed them in large numbers and left piles of discarded shells throughout the area, including at our kayak launch. Change in the composition of the lake waters greatly decreased their numbers and few, if any, are to be found today.
