Amazing staff! Hilarious and entertaining. The views are amazing and it’s definitely worth it. Just keep in mind it’s a lot of kayaking~ 3 hours.

This was my first time kayaking and paddling at night in an open river utilized by boats was outside of my comfort zone. I felt confident in the staff and their abilities. They kept our group safe and were very friendly as well. Thank you so much for the wonderful city experience.
