We made a reservation for kayaking and the shuttle upriver, and arrived 5 minutes early, only to stand in line for nearly an hour, waiting to pay. After taking our payment, we had to wait more than another hour before we loaded onto the shuttle. This company needs to evaluate its efficiency (or lack thereof), and make some serious changes....

Teen age grandchild had a blast. Recommend Aquatic Wilderness Adventure. Staff was great. Great value! Spent two plus hours on the river and and could have stayed longer if we didn't have other commitment.

We rented a kayak here and went up the Rainbow River and back. This is one of the best places to rent a kayak. Value for money is great. The sites a just beautiful. You simply must try this. Staff are friendly.

It was our first time on the rainbow river and selected AWA because they were right on the main road and the sign said "Kayak rental $20 for the day." I had a group of 8 people and went inside to inquire. The owner said he could shuttle us all now if we hurried. My wife inquired about our 10... More

However the lady who radios in with the people on the buses and people who help those into the river was nothing but rude. One bad apple can spoil the bunch. She... More

My 10 y.o. grandson and I rented a tandem kayak from AWA this morning. I called a few days earlier and reserved a spot. When we arrived I was surprised to see all the paperwork ready to be signed. Nice treat not to be filling out forms in the early morning. Had to wait a while for the kayak shuttle... More

We rented kayaks and paid for the shuttle to KP Hole. We paddled upstream and then snorkeled back to the put-in, and then paddled the rest of the way, and felt that it was about an hour too long for us. We spent about 5 hours on the water. The wildlife was awesome, but there were too many people tubing,... More

We rented 4 single-person kayaks for me, my wife, and my 2 teen daughters. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend a similar trip versus the tubing for a couple of reasons: 1) you cannot paddle upriver to get to the clearest waters near the state park and 2) the lowest third of the trip is...
