Review of Paddle the Pemi

Paddle the Pemi
Reviewed 5 July 2017

Well this being my first experience with kayaking I have to tell you about 'Paddle the Pemi'. It was an awesome and doing it with 'Paddle the Pemi' provided the best experience. Pricing is fair for the service of shuttling/drop off, pick-up, and equipment rental. Equipment was used, but in excellent condition including the life jackets. They answered every question and did not appear impatient even with what they might perceive as a "silly" question. They had a supply of things that might be forgotten, i.e. sunscreen, bug spray, etc., that could be purchased. A bit pricier than Walmart but not off the wall. Paddle the Pemi is something everyone should do while vacationing in the White Mountains. I wouldn't search or look for another business offering this service as you will find nothing that can meet or exceed the experience you will have with this company. Meeting the company mascot, Baily, was an added bonus! **FYI**, regardless of what time your trip is scheduled for departure, you can stay out all day as long as you are back at the pick-up point for 5PM. They are very serious about this and any later you will incur additional charges. Boiler Dave NH review makes it seems like it is "okay" to stay out a little later, not so. No excuse will be taken for late returns; this is a very reasonable policy as they give you plenty of time on the Pemi; 6+ hours if you leave at the 9:30AM launch for a 2.5 - 3 hr. trip.

Tried to call ahead and could only get busy signal, drove there only to find that even though the brochure and website said tubing was available, it was not. Last shuttle to canoe a 3 hour trip is at 12:30!

We were a party of six, one adult and 6 teens. Experience was totally uncomplicated. Made a reservation the morning of our trip. Arrived 15 minutes in advance and completed paperwork. Shuttle ride was timely and uneventful. River was cool, clean and not too low. Spent a comfortable, fun afternoon floating for 2.5 hours. Shuttle was ready and waiting at the end of the run. $15 per tube, additional $10 for a floating cooler. Worked out awesome. Simple, good fun. We will return!

The team at Ski Fanatics are friendly, prompt and professional. They are get you going on time. We were a little late coming back and they were not bothered at all. The scenery was beautiful and everyone was in a great mood. We met some interested people on the way. This is a very easy paddle and reasonably priced. A great way to spend the day!

First off, staff were awesome and prices were reasonable. We rented 4 single kayaks and headed up to Robin's Nest. Spent the day kayaking down the Pemi, stopped for a picnic lunch about half way down. Weather was perfect, water was refreshing and it was overall a perfect day. Had a blast and can't wait to go back.
