Passion, knowledge, hospitality – all out fun! These are just some of the few aspects Moose Pass Adventures provides throughout their guided tours.

Moose Pass Adventures is a family-owned and operated business in the heart of Moose Pass that offers a variety of tours in both the winter and summer seasons. Although Moose Pass Adventures was founded just a few years ago, the owners, JD and Jen Boyle, bring along decades of experience. JD guided whitewater rivers for years, often leading multiple day trips. JD and Jen both have plenty of year’s experience in the tourism industry, where the duo first met. This knowledge in both guiding and tourism and passion of the outdoors easily shines through on their guided tours.
“We want to make sure that our adventures aren’t just fun but also educational and enlightening. Our hope is that after kayaking or hiking with us, you’ll leave with a deeper appreciation and understanding of our mountains, our community and the cultural landscape that surrounds us.”
Passion & Knowledge
“At Moose Pass Adventures, we’re all about getting people outside, exploring the great outdoors, and learning more about the environment around us. We believe that connecting with nature can be super inspiring and help people become better stewards of the land.”
–JD & Jen Boyle
In September, our Chamber crew took a guided kayak tour and hike through Trail Lake, making stops along the way to learn about the unique history of Moose Pass and its wildlife. We strolled along the Grant Lake Portage Trail and stopped for lunch at their public use yurt.
The Boyle’s dedicated their own time and energy into building a comfortable public use yurt that overlooks Grant Lake. And the space is ever-evolving, with plans to create another yurt and amenities throughout the space in the near future.
Before the tour began, we were greeted by the Boyle Family with their personable daughter in tow, and were offered hot cups of coffee and any accommodations that we may have needed. A sense of hospitality and connection was instantly felt and the Boyle family went the extra mile to ensure every guest was comfortable. For kayaking trips, they can provide rain gear, gloves, extra layers and anything else that can help make your tour more comfortable.
Safety is a number one priority at Moose Pass Adventures. Before we got into a kayak, we went over every aspect of safety and how to properly use the equipment. The safety lesson was both engaging and informative. Every tour begins with a safety debrief and how to use the equipment.
All Out Fun!
