Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Rob W, July 2012

This was my first time kayaking so there was a bit of a learning curve for me but great weather and the water was calm. This made for good learning conditions. The guides were extremely knowledgeable about the local area and provided really good information. They provided a warm chowder and cider after the trip. The boat ride to and from the kayak dock was simply breath taking. If you go on a clear day you will see all the surrounding mountain peaks. I am not a water lover naturally but went out of my comfort zone and seriously enjoyed this adventure.
