Fantastic sunset paddle - Lovely sunset kayak trip along the north shore with Dawn! She is very knowledgeable about local geology and Lake Erie. A stop at Pebble Beach to find fossils was a fun addition to the trip. Highly recommend this outing with this company.

Fun Kayak Tour around Kelley's Island - My sister and I had a wonderful time kayaking with a small group around about half of the island at a reasonable, family-friendly pace. Dawn was a wonderful, knowledgeable and laid-back tour guide who incorporated interesting historic and geologic facts along the way. We stopped part way for a short swim at a rocky beach where beautiful granite rocks and fossils could be found. Loved this tour, and will definitely be back again!

Fun adventure - Dawn confirmed my reservation immediately and communicated professionally. I was glad that she didn't ask to cancel when I was the only person who booked. She seemed to know a lot, but talked mostly about what interested me.
