The employee was extremely good explaining about safety and how to manage the kayak. We have great time. Happy customer I will return
WE LOVED IT!!! Everyone was so helpful and friendly, it was our first time kayaking and so we were a little nervous, but our minds were put to ease as things were explained to us and questions answered. We will be planning our next trip to Arizona and we include the Butcher Jones Paddle every time!!!
Everyone I delt with was very nice. The guys at the lake waited for us and never made me feel bad for making them wait. Get there early as parking can get pretty crowded. Lake is beautiful and worth the trip!!
Very good company to use for kayaking. Very good instruction and launch , very kind and polite helpers.We will be back to use this company again.Thanks for a beautiful experience . From the senior kayaker in the group.
We had a great time - the kayaks were set up and ready to go, the introductory talk was brief and informative, the guys running it were friendly and organized. Everything was perfect. Thanks!
We loved kayaking! Everyone was on time and great to work with. Thank you Dale and Andrew for setting and showing us a great time!
What a beautiful lake to kayak on- just wish we were a bit more familiar with it as we headed back a bit too early to drop of the Kayaks. The Kayaks were great- Andrew was very pleasant and easy going when dropping off the Kayaks. We were the only ones that day, and showed up at 9:30- but closer to 10 no one had yet arrived- we got a bit worried we were in the wrong spot. Tried to call the number on the confirmation and also email- but both not up to date- so would suggest you check into that- otherwise- we would defiantly rent through your company again- our first visit to Arizona- and well worth our day!!
Our experience was great. On site Andrew was very helpful when getting us started and answered all of our questions. The staff at the ranch was great over the phone getting a late addition registered. I would recommend and would go again!
There also a great hiking trail along the shores with great views. We were not aware of the trail until Trever from Saguaro Lake Ranch told us about it when he arrived at the lake with the Kayaks. We went Kayaking in the morning and went hiking on the Butcher Jones Trail in the afternoon. Everyone in the office was also very helpful. It was a beautiful sunny January day. I highly recommend the Butcher Jones Paddle. Jordan & Keri/Edmonton, AB.
Lot of fun and the scenery was beautiful. We would have liked better route suggestions, such as a landmarks, as opposed to being told just head left.
As been my experience, the support staff and personnel have been exceptional. Thank you!
Thus was my 2nd time kayaking at saguara lake. Love it!!
A very enjoyable experience. Wish it was a little longer. Would do it again.
We loved the service and it was an unforgettable experience!!
Very helpful staff. Beautiful lake
Good start Location. I wish the kayak had been a bit longer. Generally pleased
Great for people who want to try kayaking.
Awesome day on the lake!! Very enjoyable and good instruction to have fun!
The experience was as described on your website. The kayak wrangler (?) was friendly and helpful. The lake was beautiful. We will definitely be return customers! Thank you.
Very friendly staff, beautiful location, perfect amount of time on the water. I just wish there was a better way of letting us know when the time was up, or recommend bringing a waterproof watch!
Could use longer paddles but boat was good.
Kayaks were delivered to the beach right on time. Good well cared for equipnent
The guys that met us at the lake were so nice. Thank you for being so accommodating
What great people and what a great time!
John and the operation was incredible. The area was incredible. The girls at the ranch's front desk were a little distant.
Incredible kayaking experience. Extremely helpful guides and beautiful views throughout the lake. A great challenge to an experienced kayaker to push yourself and see how much distance you can cover throughout the lake, and perfect for beginners to go at their own pace and enjoy the scenery. Had a wonderful time overall and cannot wait to visit again.
The kayak trip on Saguaro Lake was really nice. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The two guys were very patient and the lake and Day was absolutely gorgeous!
I love a family owned business. The father and son were very helpful and nice to my daughter and me. The views were amazing! It was a perfect, relaxing trip.
Thanks to Saguaro Lake Ranch, I've had a fun introduction to Kayaking! I enjoyed it so much, I'm looking forward to trying their Summer offering of a float down the Lower Salt River.
