Enjoyed an excellent kayak excursion with guide Buddy. Nice ice and scenery. Buddy was very informative with his commentary.

We rented from the Talbot Park location. This is a lovely place to kayak in the marsh. The people running the business gave us clear instructions about where to go, how to get back, and we had no problems being on our own for a delightful 2 hour trip. Highly recommend.

What a great experience. I signed my daughter and nephew (14 & 13) up for the Paddleboarding intro class and boy was it fun. I also brought along my 10 year old nephew to watch as I felt he was too afraid. Still, the instructor made him feel a part of the whole ordeal. Grabbed him a small paddle and he went through all the onshore training along side the others. Such a loving gesture from the company. On the water, the instructor was amazing. Even though they each ended up in the water a few times...lol.. the instructor kept helping out when needed and calming this nervous mom. My daughter caught on with ease. My nephew had loads of fun. They paddled out a bit and I could still walk around and see them from shore. Then back the came. When it was over and everyone was coming back in, the instructor even let the little one stand on the board in the water at the ramp for a while... he was so excited to take part. And I felt he was totally safe as the instructor never left his side. I would highly recommend this to everyone. Great experience at a great price. Let me just say this.. If you know mosquitoes are attracted to you...at all.. spray yourself down before you arrive... they are very very active and hungry in the early mornings🤦‍♀️... but a bit of bug spray and a nice breeze came to save the day and it was absolutely awesome after that.

Overall great trip. Our guide CJ started out by giving us some paddling pointers which really helped. Nice leisurely paddle with a few stops to give some interesting history facts about the area and environmental info. Great stop on a sandy beach to stretch the legs, do some swimming and enjoy some amazing chocolate chip cookies!! Had a great time learned allot and will defiantly be back. If you are in the area book a trip with Kayak Amelia!!

Great to hear you had a fun trip. We found out early on that a little paddle instruction made the trip easier for everyone. Unless you're a frequent paddler, after an hour sitting in a kayak your legs need a stretch. Thanks for the great review!!
