A delightful kayak trip. We were met at the park and transported to the put-in location further up the creek. The instructions were serious and thorough. The equipment was all very good. The creek was running at a pace that allowed us to drift and enjoy the scenery and the quiet. There were no other people on the creek during out trip. Saw a bald eagle in a tree along the river. We were met back at the park where we had left our vehicle, and getting out of the kayaks (always the most challenging part of the trip for us) went off without a hitch. We were very satisfied with our trip!
It was lovely - great, relaxing day with good information shared, no pressure on our pace and good communication leading up to the excursion. Thanks for always offering such a great experience!
Very friendly service. Very helpful. This is a good place to go if it's your first time kayaking because they have this cool ramp thingy that makes it super easy to get in the kayak and on the water.
This is our 2nd kayaking trip with Cocoa Kayaking of Hershey ~ this time we did 5.5 miles in 2 hours. Ben was great! Very knowledgeable ~ Debra & their son were very helpful getting on & off the river. There were 10 people on this trip ~ they managed it really well! We saw a Bald Eagle!!!! A heron, turtle... We’re going again this Saturday on the Tavern Run ~ really looking forward to it!
Friendly and knowledge staff, great quality equipment. We are planning are next adventure already!
Trip was as advertised - Ben is knowledgeable and very helpful - plus, the weather cooperated nicely!
Great trip Outfitters was helpful and knowledgeable.
We did the Boathouse run last Sunday. It was fabulous. The staff was enthusiastic and very friendly. The gear was clean and they got our group outfitted, trained, and on the river in record time. The river itself was peaceful and relaxing, and not difficult at all. We could do it again.
Professional, friendly and awesome!! What more can I say?!! Go kayaking with Cocoa Kayaks!! You'll love it!
Great staff, they knew exactly what they were talking about and the scenery was beautiful.
Great rates and service. Really enjoyed our trip. So relaxing and serene and tons of wildlife!
It was easy booking with Cocoa Kayak Rentals. Ben was very knowledgeable of the area and explained the history of the Swatara creek. I had a good time kayaking and would like to do this during the summer days. Thank You
A great day on the river! Very well ran business with extremely involved owners that came out on the river with us. Had a blast!
Great customer service and enjoyed the history about the area that Ben provided as he drove us to our starting point.
Excellent service, their trailer and van were there on time! The trip down the river was great!
Everything was great! Nice peaceful float down the creek!
Myself and my children had a wonderful time. Our guide was patient and attentive, the staff friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour and company with complete confidence. Next time we are in the area we will be returning !
Very friendly staff who know their stuff. Great guidance, awesome scenery and very easy in/out of the water. Great deal for the price, and it is no wonder they have folks continuing to come back. We certainly will be!
I think Ben and his outfit are excellent at what they do. They are very thorough with their safety instructions and they make sure everyone is comfortable before heading out onto the creek. They took very good care of my group of 10 folks.
Very organized! We loved every second! The crew was so nice and helpful! We will definitely be back!
Hosts were friendly and professional; great stretch of the creek, easy paddle for any level of experience
Debra was a great guide and we had a wonderful time on our trip. We will be back.
Great service in shuttle ride and orientation. Also, great service when we finished trip. Great team with great energy.
Friendly, informative, and punctual. Great experience! We plan to come again and recommend Cocoa Kayak to anyone.
