Great experience! Canoe was in excellent condition, customer service is top notch, and the area is beautiful. Don’t hesitate if you are considering a canoe or kayak trip. Especially if you are a beginner. Well worth the price.

I would highly recommend spending half a day on some kayaks rented from this business. It was easy to reserve online and staff is always friendly. We have rented from here several times. One year we made a huge mistake and got in the river at the wrong bridgw. Staff was very friendly and forgiving for returning the equipment after hours.
