The adventure starts with being transported to the river but your host. Ours was Brian and he is awesome. From the river you begin rowing upstream, which was not difficult; to a point where you park your kayak and hike about 30 minutes to a...More

Duke's is a small operation. It seems literally to be out of someone's garage. But they provide everything (except snacks...bring your own). We got Miguel. I had heard good things about Brian, but he didn't do our trip. Miguel was certainly nice enough, and knew...More

The morning tour is the way to go, get up early and hit Java kai for breakfast then go right across the street to Dukes. The afternoon sun gets really hot and the wind picks up and rowing gets harder. If you make it to...More
