We had a great afternoon doing the Bald Eagle Run paddle. Mike was very informative in giving navigational tips for the section of the creek we were paddling. We got to see heron, egrets and a couple eagles. Wonderful trip. We’re looking forward to doing another section of the Swatara next season!

Mike was great! Shared a lot of historical information on the area and also provided great tips for kayaking. They were so helpful with helping to load and carry the kayaks. I will definitely choose them again for my next adventure on the Swatara Creek.

This was the second time kayaking with Cocoa Kayak Rentals of Hershey and I highly recommend them! Mike was great and gave us all the history about the creek and its wildlife. He pointed out things we would see along the way and gave us an informative paddling lesson with directions. We will definitely be back!

The logistics are flawless, and Mike’s knowledge of the area is excellent. The creek is a pleasure to paddle down with plenary of bird life. We saw Bald Eagles, Osprey, Red Tailed hawks, Belted Kingfishers, various Heron, Wader and duck species. .

This is a great place to rent kayaks from. The staff was fantastic and knowledgeable. And the scenery itself was nice. The only problem I had was being put in a kayak too big for me. Which made the kayaking trip exhausting.
