Wonderful place. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff, who know when to make jokes to keep the pace lively and when to give you a peptalk to help you accomplish your challenge. Clean place with beautiful scenic views. Had a great time today with friends and our kids. My three boys ages 8, 14, and 17 all had fun and didn't... More

So glad you enjoyed it. We often list specials on our events page or we post them on our facebook page. This way you can try out some of the other programs we run like kayaking trips or the upcoming Mud Run. More

Terrapin Adventures sold a "Kayak, Zip Line & BBQ Lunch Tour" through Zozi last April. I took advantage of the discounted deal and bought four tickets. The tickets expire on Oct. 1. Yesterday, I tried to book my adventure and to my dismay, they are only booking ONE DATE for this adventure, which unfortunately we cannot make. How can you... More

We have had three open to the public kayak bbq tours since the Zozi deal and have open dates on August 3, 10, and September 7th. We also tell people that if those dates do not work, to call us to see if we can arrange a mutually agreeable date. More

Instead of fighting the crowds this Memorial Day weekend in DC or the Inner Harbor we visited Terrapin Adventures in Savage MD and a fun time was had by the entire family. Mom and Dad as well as our 13 and ten year olds enjoyed the zipline adventure as well as the large "swing". Having done ziplining in the past... More

My daughter and did the big pkg $83 for 4 hours and included all things. The guides were good, but there should have been a better way to manage the "back ups" with the people, I don't know if it was over scheduling or what. Also I was surprised about how much upper body strength was needed, and I'm not... More

Our guide Steve was wonderful; very knowledgeable and entertaining. This was great for beginners but not necessarily for someone who has kayaked before and it looking for a little more of a thrill. I definitely recommend this if you are new to kayaking and would like to learn how to properly handle your kayak out on the water and are... More

I had the great opportunity to take my leadership team to Terrapin Adventures for some team building. We started with the low course and worked through several tasks that really showcased some of our weaknesses and strengths. After the exercises, we were able to blow off some steam and take advantage of the drop swing and zip line. Both gave... More

And not in a good way... The place was difficult to find - we happened to have seen the sign on the highway and decided to check it out after looking it up on the phone Once we got to the Mill we couldn't find the office, once we found it and I walked up to the desk, the young... More

I am sorry that we were not able to accommodate your walk-in request. We do our best to fit guest in without detracting from those groups and individuals who reserved ahead of time. Sometimes we just cannot make it work and I hope you try in the future by booking online or calling ahead. By reserving more than 14 days... More

I was fortunate enough to go with my middle school to Terrapin Adventures at the end of the school year. The 8th graders had an excellent time, many did activities that I really don't think they would otherwise have the opportunity to do. We enjoyed the rock climbing wall (all 4 sides), the large 3 person swing (perhaps the best... More

My husband wanted an adventure for his 40th...so a group of friends headed to Terrapin Adventures for the all day adventure package. As a fellow small business owner, I was so pleasantly surprised by the oline experience, the facilities and the staff. It is clear that lots of thought went in to how to create a place that was safe,... More
