Bent River took our group - Young Professionals - on a kayaking trip down Blue Earth River. It was my first time and it was great! The guides are so nice and fun! I can't wait to go again!

We booked a private half day kayaking tour for 6 which got a shuttle to and from the river a snack and a guide. We had an amazing day. I worried that 4 hours of kayaking would be too long for our group of middle aged women but it was perfect. I wasn't sore at all the next day. Dixie,... More
