I usually skip bad reviews and focus my reviews to highlighting really great experiences. However, renting a double kayak here really left me feeling like I was mislead and overcharged and I wanted to warn others. First, They rent whole day and half day. So,...More

I did this with my girlfriend, we did the sunset kayaking and we absolutely loved it. Make sure if you're going to go here to kayak, to do it when they have the pony swim. It's where they round up all the ponies.

I had never kayaked before, but our guide said that was no problem. It wasn't, I loved it! If you love being on the water and a little bit of a workout, you should definitely try this. We were within 30 yards of the ponies.
