Thanks to Don and Rita's expertise, with great humor included, I had my first trip in a kayak at the tender age of 61. It was everything I had hoped for. A peaceful way to spend a morning seeing wildlife, learning facts about the area, and meeting neat people. The teachings were delivered simply and in the most professional manner.... More

My husband planned this trip for my 65 th birthday. It was wonderful. You kayak to the shore and walk over to the Atlantic Ocean. It was deserted and so awesome. The basin was very calm so it was easy paddling. We are planning another trip when our daughter visits in October.

I had to call to set up our tours (instead of doing it online) but it was quick and easy especially calling from Colorado. After we arrived in Wilmington, Don texted me to confirm our Bird Kayaking tour for early Monday morning, The 3 of us arrived early Monday and Don was there, ready to go. He did a safety... More

We had a great time on the shark tooth island tour. My wife, teenage son and daughter and I had a blast paddling around and exploring the three islands we visited. The weather was beautiful and Don (the owner & our guide) was very knowledgable, patient, and friendly. We recommend this adventure for anyone looking to have some family fun.

We were a group of 6 (ages 17 to 71) and did the Moore's Creek tour. It was fun for the entire family. Most of tour was pretty well shaded which is a bonus on a bright sunny day. Paddling was easy and water smooth and slow. Would be great even with small children. Don and Sam were wonderful guides... More

We were a group of 4 inexperienced kayakers. Three of us are over 40 and we had a 19 year old with us. We wanted to try something different and were thrilled that we found Mahanaim Adventures. We were the only ones in our group with two wonderful guides, Sam and Kirk. We felt completely at ease entering the water... More

Had a fantastic day on the Cape Fear River with our super friendly and knowledgeable guides, Sam and Mandy! Our group of 8 including 3 adults and a mix of teens and preteens took tandem kayaks to three separate islands on the Cape Fear River. We collected lots of sharks teeth and fossils along the way. So thrilled we booked... More

We went on the Fort Fisher River Basin tour and it was an excellent experience. Despite some choppy water and rather windy conditions, we had a very good experience on the water and exploring nearby protected beaches and sea turtle habitat. This protected area of salt marshes had a nice variety of sea birds and wildlife, offering glimpses of some... More

My boyfriend and I experienced this tour and loved it! We have slight experience with kayak and I was worried about our skill level but the water was so smooth! We barely had to paddle, we drifted 60% of the time and just enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We scheduled it for a friday night, and we went to the meeting... More

We traveled the waters with Don and Sam as our guides for a sunset picnic and had a wonderful experience. They are very patient with inexperienced kayakers and make it fun by chatting with you about the area, birds, wildlife, etc., all while you are kayaking your way to a nice little island picnic and fabulous sunset view. You won't... More
