Pack & Paddle reviews
I would like to hike and yoga once a month. The guides are very nice and gave us an educational experience as well about things we saw during our hike. more »
It was a good paddle. Very informative guide. Would have liked to stay on the water a tad longer and watch the sun drop below the horizon. more »
Higher quality 3 season outdoor clothing, gear and accessories. The staff is both super friendly and super knowledgeable. Great paddling and fishing excursions. Great selection of paddling and fishing gear. You will pay a little more, but worth it.
Great selection of kayaks and camping/paddling gear. Knowledgable staff and kayak demos make this a great place for experienced paddlers and novices alike!
