River is beautiful, I suggest searching for other vendors as this particular one doesn't know what customer service is, they simply do not care. Case in point: We reserved two canoes, 10 minutes later i kid you not, we called to cancel one of the...More

Thanks for your review Zoogig. You are 100% correct we do have a no cancelation policy. Hopefully others can benefit from your sharing. We definitely share this with everyone that makes a reservation but one more way to communicate is always good.

Not recommended for the inexperienced kayaker! They have you sign waivers before they do anything, and at the river they give very basic instructions on the river bank. But once you get in the water they expect you to remember what was said and maneuvers...More

Hello Smbry, Sorry your experience was not the best. That's a great suggestion to demonstrate strokes in the water. Unfortunately that section is flowing a bit so our demonstration would quickly move away. All of our trips are unguided and we attempt to make everyone...More

7 miles down the river. You are dropped off and then met down the river, paddling all the way and there are some Rapids, which you must maneuver through. Did get wet, enjoyed it!

My adult granddaughter did both of these trips while we were there. She had an awesome time, but is experienced in both of these areas. I was a little concerned to hear that no guide actually accompanied the group in the water.
