Called ahead about renting a kayak and getting shuttle service for our kayak; the woman I talked to was very helpful. Stopped by the next morning and got a kayak for the Dennison to Green River ferry trip. The information they provided about the river and the time it would take were accurate. I had to wait a little while... More

We just completed a 7.5 mile trip down the Green River and were not disappointed. We called earlier in the week for reservations. They have canoes, Sit-on and Sit-on Kayaks as well as canoes. The drivers know the area well and have lived there for years. The Sit-On Kayaks are Jackson Riviera Kayaks. The Sit-In Kayaks are small for 1... More

Mammoth Cave Canoe & Kayak provided shuttle service and one rental kayak for my party of eight this past weekend for our overnight trip down the Green River from Dennison's to Houchin's Ferry. They charged $80 to rent the worst kayak I have seen. It had absolutely no space for storage in the hull unless your keep your bags between... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our time on the river was enjoyable. The only drawback was having to wait to be taken back to our car. The parking lot where the trip ends is no longer used by this canoe service. Would recommend.

Equipment was good, driver good, but we were told that there was always a current. Not true! We paddled for 7 1/2 miles, no current.

We did two 2 hour tours while here. The guides are great and so was the experience. The only draw back is some of the tours have been cut due to funding.

We live near this location. The green river always has plenty of water for kayaking or canoeing without dragging the bottom. There are sand bars and places to pull the kayak or canoe out to swim or have lunch. There is always a bit of current too which helps. A relaxing trip can be done in 3.5 hours. For the... More

We took the Niagra Falls tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was very easy on the legs for folks that cannot get around well. The website says its a 1.25 hour tour, but I think that includes the bus drive to the site because I don't think we were in the cave that long. If you are... More

We took the historcal tour and it was amazing. Autumn was the lead guide and since we had a small group she was able to take the time to answer all of our questions. We will come back again and spend the weekend to camp, hike and take the other tours.
