We had a great trip. We always love to kayak on trips. This was very mild rapids in my opinion. Very relaxing and not strenuous. Guide was very sweet as well.

Great time on the water with Jordy! I’d recommend this to anyone! Just enough white water to keep you on your toes. Nice peaceful trip with plenty of scenery.

"Kayaking was AMAZING!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We took the 3 hour white water kayaking trip with Jordie and it was THE BEST! We were greeted in a quick and friendly manner. The instructions they gave us were perfect. The equipment worked really well for us two adults and our young teen children. We had not really kayaked before so this was a great trip that gave us a couple of challenging spots but also didn’t intimidate us. Jordie, who was our tour guide, was knowledgeable and patient. The trip took exactly how long they said. We will definitely use this company again!
