First time canoeing !
about 1 year ago
Everyone who was apart of organizing the trip were friendly and funny! The trip itself was soothing... minus us crashing into branches and such because my bf and I didn’t know how to canoe for the first 30-60mins ! Lol We finished the 7mile route in 2 hours so the length wasn’t too bad at all.

A really great experience!! the staff was great! this can be done by any age level as the water is very shallow and runs very slowly. would highly recommend!

We decided to try something new for our first anniversary and came across the river kayaking deal. We'd never been kayaking and this was the perfect trip for us! Guide allowed us to take as long as we wanted even though it was only slated for two hours. Thanks for helping us find a new adventure and hobby, tripshock!
