Norris was an awesome and friendly guide. He made sure everyone in the group is keeping pace and doing well during the 2.5 hr tour, and we learned lots of history and fun facts about Frisco. Views were fantastic and we even got to see a bald eagle's nest.

First time kayaker, and now I’m hooked! It was a beautiful tour with an incredibly helpful and engaging guide. The experience was very approachable for a first time kayaker (though I do have experience canoeing) and provided an awesome range of environments to explore.
