What a wonderful time we had. I took my wife for her birthday and we were lucky enough to be the only couple on the tour. Josh was such a wonderful guide. Easy paddling, smooth water. Thanks for the great evening!

My husband and I took our 10 year old and 18 year old exchange student on this tour. Ben, our guide, was very helpful and informative. A perfect mix of breathtaking views, history and exercise. I definitely recommend it.

Wonderful experience! Kayaks were in good shape and the guys working were friendly and helpful. Offered us a dry bag for our stuff and steadied the kayaks as we got in. Can’t beat the scenery or the beautiful water!

Wonderful event with great guide who was knowledgeable about the history and geography of the Lake. Most enjoyable event. For those that go, wear your swimsuit, because you will get wet!

We took the sunset kayak tour. I don't recommend this for experienced kayakers unless you want to learn primarily about the Lake and do less kayaking. We had beautiful weather and lovely views, but I would have like to have kayaked instead of the frequent...More

We had a great experience doing this! Brad was our guide, very knowledgeable and we did learn some very cool history about the lake. We are very familiar with the area and still learned some more interesting tidbits! The sunset was fantastic and we definitely...More
