Staff was great. The experience was awesome. Doing a single kayak full-day trip is the only way to go in a small group. My wife and I will do this a few more times this year.

This was my second time renting tubes from Blackwater Canoe Rental. I especially enjoyed the narrated ride to the drop off point.

I grew up on this river and I’ll never have a negative thing to say. Black water Canoe is beyond gracious and hospitable. It’s always a pleasure dealing with them!

We took our children (3 and 9) out for the 3 hour trip, I believe. Everything was great. Everyone we encountered was helpful and friendly. The only thing I’d say is to make sure you have cash for the park fee ($4.00).
