The kayak trip was advertised as 3-4 hours but we completed it without much effort in a little more than an hour.
Fun, lazy river. No hassle. Friendly and laidback staff. Just what I was looking for in a day of kayaking.
We had an awesome time. Extremely fun!!
My sister and I had a great time! The river was a bit low, but it just added to the adventure. I would definitely recommend TRL to friends and will plan a day back next summer!
The women running this event are delightful...and they seem to want to do anything possible to make it a fun experience. The water was pretty low, so I would hope that water levels are checked frequently to ensure you aren't pulling your kayak around rather than floating. Thanks!
We had a great time on the river!
Will definitely be going back soon!
My husband and I were the only ones going down the river that day. It was so nice to be away from the baby and just enjoy my husband on his birthday. The length of the trip is perfect and the staff was so hospitable, you felt like family. We plan to go back soon!
a nice paddle on a late fall day. Staff was helpful and attentive
My group thoroughly enjoyed our late afternoon kayak session down the Tar River. The parking lot is the end point while the drop off point is a quick mini school bus ride away. We were lucky to have ideal weather. The river speeds were extremely easygoing, with just a couple of slight drops over rocky sections of the river. I would definitely wear swimming trunks because you'll get wet-- but not soaked since you can stand ankle deep at some areas. There are "rest areas" along the river to slide up on the kayak and take a break, if needed. Going under the bridge and taking in the scenery was pretty fun. Also bring a cooler! There's plenty of space on the kayak to hold belongings since it's an open kayak. Megan was very helpful in making a few adjustments to the reservation beforehand; she was just as pleasant on the bus ride to the drop off point and explaining everything we needed to do and know once we arrived to the riverbank. She grew up in the area, so you can definitely tell she knew what she was doing! Would recommend 10/10 I wish the river were closer, but the drive out was nice.
EASY MOVEMENT DOWN THE RIVER,VERY CASUAL,ENJOYABLE.IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER WITH TWO MORE FEET OF WATER IN THE RIVER.
The day was great as we enjoyed the peace an serenity floating down river.. We enjoyed Ann unhurried trip Kayaking on the river. Staff was most helpful in instructing us getting us started.
The staff was awesome and the river was beautiful! Great experience!!
Excellent instructions and getting us started but no one to greet us at the finish. Would recommend to others.
Great experience! Thank you!
Great place and had an awesome time, however the price is pretty high for the experience.
Jacob was extremely friendly and let us know everything we needed to know about our trip. Even telling us how to navigate the "adorable" rapid. I'd defiantly recommend it and hope to do it again soon.
Great customer service and super knowledgeable of the river.
Jacob at TRL was great! Very knowledgeable & very prepared for our trip. Great way to spend a fall afternoon.
Because I enjoyed it and it was relaxing
Great trip. Will do it again. Beautiful and very quiet.
Simple to book, easy to get in the river once you show up, friendly & helpful service, relaxing kayak trip. Would definitely do it again!
We had so much fun kayaking with Tar River Life. Jacob was so personable and funny, and the ride was the perfect mix of challenge and relaxation. The landscape was stunning. I recommend an afternoon ride as the sun shines beautifully through the trees.
Jacob and his staff were great!
It was a perfect day! We arrived without any snacks or beverages, because we were running late. We bought water and chips there and the staff was so energetic and upbeat! Can't wait to do it again!!
I took a few kids with friends and we had a blast and it was safe and easy!
It was my first time kayaking and I assumed I would tip over at least once or twice. I was surprised at how stable the kayaks were. It was relaxing and we made some great memories. Time and money well spent. We hope to do it again this Fall. Oh, I never even came close to tipping over.
Good entertainment value. The staff was all friendly and helpful. We had a great time and plan to do it again.
Great fun, and good service.
Had a great time. The staff was all so friendly and personable. Would love to come back! The river was beautiful and the equipment was in food shape also. Thank you!
Great customer service, friendly, prompt and so easy to work with. Equipment is easy to use and the river is easy to navigate. Can't say enough good things - can't wait to go again!!
The staff was wonderfully helpful. The kayaks we rented were in great shape and they allowed us to take our time on the river. Great time!
Fantastic time! Great people! Will do it again.
Jacob was great and very helpful. Only downside was that the river was very low and we had to portage a couple times but that is obviously out of their control. We enjoyed it so much I will be booking another trip and packing a lunch as soon as we get some decent rain.
