A friend and I rented bikes here to tour around Southport. Both employees we interacted with were wonderful. They set us up with baskets and a bike lock and provided suggestions on where to go! It was a perfect way to explore the city! I would rent bikes here again.

This was such a worth while outing! We let John and Lee lead us down the Rice River and had a wonderful 2+ hours of serenity. The kayaks are a breeze to maneuver even if you have never done it before and with our guides short tutorial before the start of the trip, there was no hesitation or fear whatsoever.... More

The Adventure Kayak Company's tour of Rice Creek was wonderful! John and Lee, our tour guides, provided information about the area while paddling down the river. The tour is in the morning and we went with other family members. This was my first time to kayak in black water and John explained how the water was very clean and fresh... More

We went on a morning kayak trip to Rice's creek in Leland. It was really fun! The tour guide knew a lot about the area wildlife and history. The water was very calm which was perfect for my friend who had never kayaked before.

Kayak outing was fun and well organized. Two guides worked together to get the group outfitted and into the water. Excellent historical background provided about the spot we paddled to with the kayaks. Got to see "armies" of Fiddler crabs. Good trip for adults and kids.

Several of my family members decided to take a kayak trip down the Rice River. The black water was amazing for reflections and a peaceful get away. Our guide John was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. He made us feel very comfortable at ease with the river and kayaks quickly.
