  • Great service, great river. We did the 2 to 3 hour kayak experience and it was a little bit more than our seven-year-old could handle‚Ķ But it was still enjoyable. The river is calm, clean, and crystal clear. It was a wonderful time.
  • Take yourself back in time, floating down a clear, clean river with uncharted territory on either bank!

Well worth the price!!
