Kayak up the river

Jim gave everyone a tutorial on how to kayak at the very beginning. It was an excellent class and everyone was able to paddle efficiently up and down the river. We saw a number of... read more

After making a reservation, our multi generational group of women were ready for fun in the river! We arrived on time, but had to call (who brings phones on a kayak trip>) to get the owner to come back to the store. The owner had no established plan on 1) how to get us to the drop off, 2) no...

My husband and I had a very nice time kayaking. It was very hot but on the water it was at least 10 degrees cooler. We saw an Osprey nest with a fledgling standing up with the momma. Many blue heron and other birds made the trip enjoyable. The water was pretty calm and that made for a smooth trip.... More

Wonderful owners/operators....very sweet..knowledgeable..helpful. We went out on a great Sunday morning on a route recommended by Jim and it was exactly as explained...including the tiny sandy beach area to stop and have our picnic lunch. We saw turtles, deer, fish, birds and snakes. The creek was serene.

Called Memorial Day weekend for a half day kayak tour for next day. Luckily it was no problem and we enjoyed a very nice half day kayaking tour with 2 adults and 3 kids 16-20. The operation is extremely efficient even if it is a very informal "on the edge of the envelope" type of laid down half-retirement business. You... More

Called over a week in advance to rent two kayaks and they said no. Don't know why, they just said, call another company, who would be better suited to my needs. I asked why they didn't want my business, they just said, you should really call the other company. I half expected them just to say they were too busy.... More

This was the 3rd time I've gone over the past 5 years. The beauty of the area is so awesome and I like the owner. He's knowledgable and is a great guide. I've seen eagles, ospreys, ducks and other wildlife. It's a cool experience. The only knock is I wish the kayaks were lighter and cleaner and they could stand... More

Never opened, and always get answering machine. they tell you on the phone they are out kayaking. Has to be a one man operation, neat storefront, but never open.

So happy that we did this - we'd never been kayaking before and this was a perfect trip for beginners. We paddled for several hours and got to see some great bird wildlife; with an excellent tour guide, who took care of everything from beginning to end, we felt like we were in great hands! Excellent trip - hope to... More

This business has a great way for you to see the creeks, river and the bay at Rock Hall by paddling kayaks or by standup paddle boards. Seven of us chose standup paddle boarding (SUP). We met at their Main St. location to sign release forms and make payments. We then followed Mr. Jim to Spring Cove Landing where the... More
