Great Time with Kids

We rented the Kayakes. Water is calm. Beaches along the way for rest stops. Great for beginners since it was my first time on a Kayake and my partner was a 5 year old! Myself, my 14 and 5 year old and 59 year old Aunt had an awesome time! Great family adventure.

It’s not your typical tourist activity so it could easily be overlooked. However, I took my family there and we all enjoyed it and will be back next year!!

We had a great time. Water was really clear and river was pretty shallow for most of the trip. Lots of sand bars to stop at and have lunch or to play in the water.
