The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. We were given good directions and helpful advice. The equipment was in good shape.
Great service with a smile. Wonderful tandem kayak trip. I highly recommend.
Friendly staff, minimal effort on our part, truly a relaxing and fun experience. Looking forward to trying the camping!
We wanted something that wasn't too difficult as it was our first time kayaking with the kids. It was a beautiful path and very smooth- no rapids really... we all had a great time and will do it again!
It was amazing experience.
Wasn't anything to do with company , just needed a foot more of water
It was a good deal, good service but very disappointed that the water was so shallow we got stuck in the sand a lot. I understand you can’t control the weather but it did affect the experience.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. River was a bit low, but we had great fun anyway. Beautiful day, beautiful scenery, beautifully quiet.
Such a glorious time. The information was good. We we're able to text the day before for last minute question and got a prompt response, they were prompt and informative on the drive to the drop off point, the ride was beautiful and we could stop along the way and go at our own speed, we got help putting our kyaks in and out and everyone was friendly. Thank you for a memorable experience!
I reached out via email the day before with a question but received no response to a follow up question.
You can take your time and you don't have to paddle too much. They take you up river so you end up back at the parking lot where your car is. This is a river that is not crowded with people on it. Lots of nature to enjoy.
The Kayaks were in pretty good shape. The organizer, Jacob was also very specific with the details regarding the course and we ended up having a pretty good time. Thanks Jacob.
Great experience. We will definitely be back!
It was a great trip! All staff were friendly and organized.
Such a fun day! Staff was so friendly!! Will come back!
A great experience from the moment I scheduled until we finished our trip. Friendliest staff! Thank you all!
This was a great experience! I had never kayaked before, and my husband and I went on a beautiful morning. The employees were very helpful, and we had a great time.
We've never been kayaking. The manager gave us a great orientation and helpful tips on how to maneuver the river. It was a blast! What made it even better was it was supposed to be hot weather, but a gentle rain came and cooled things off and made the trip a real adventure. Very serene and scenic journey--cool looking trees and rocks.
Great guide, loved his job. Really had fun.
It was the perfect 3 plus hour get away! The staff was awesome and very friendly! We will definitely go again and have already recomended to to friends!
Was a very peaceful kayaking trip. Was a wonderful experience as a first timer. Thanks!
Loved it, you did a great job, be back soon!
Staff were very friendly and gave informative information on what to expect. Trip was relaxing, serene, and much needed!
Start off to a great day!! I brought my 9 year old grandson to his first time river trip... we went tubing after our Kayak trip. An all of lube great time on the river. Thanks Jacob & Carla!!
The staff was super friendly and took the time to explain everything.
We had a lot of fun!
Staff were friendly. Very scenic route.
We had a great time. Jacob was very helpful to me in setting this up.
The staff was excellent and very courtieous and helpful but would have liked the river to have more rapids and be entertaining. It was kind of boring. Great way to spend some time with the spouse and connect though.
We had a very relaxing, enjoyable trip down the Tar River. Staff was great and kayaks were perfect. Thank you!
This was my second trip with Tar River Life, this time I brought my 77 year old mother!! This was her first ever kayak venture and Mom had a great time. She is asking for trip number 2 asap. Jacob and his team do everything possible to make this a wonderful 1/2 day of fun. I recommend this to all my friends and family!!
