Wesley is not only great at customer service and response time....he is incredibly easy to talk with and a great guide! He knows a lot of background about his surroundings and the wild life. Not to mention an excellent photographer!
Kayaking with my 5 year old is always a challenge, but we were so entranced in maneuvering around the beautiful trees and jumping in the water and a little swimming we had a fabulous time...he was fully entertained the entire trip.
We HIGHLY recommend kayaking at George L. Smith State Park with Mill Pond Kayak..no way you would ever regret it!

Trip is 4 miles and a full 3.5 hours. It’s a great value. Kayaking is a bit challenging, but extremely fun and relaxing. Great for kids. Wesley was a great guide and very personal. State park and pond is beautiful. New cottages also.

Must do kayak tour! We booked this tour as a stop over on the way home from visiting the Georgia coast. The scenery of the Mill Pond is stunning and Wesley provides the most enjoyable kayak tour experience possible. Wesley is friendly, professional, and informative of the flora & fauna in the “swamp”. We had a lot of fun and this is a beautiful and unique tour of cypress tree blackwater.

My college aged kids, husband and I recently had an amazing afternoon paddling with Wesley. The location is so unique, Wesley was great to deal with before, during and after. He took photos during the tour and sent them to us afterwards, such a nice bonus.

If you're in the area, definitely contact Wesley for a truly relaxing kayaking trip.

I would highly recommend it!

My wife and I were camping at a local state park and were looking for something to do. We found Mill Pond Kayaks and are we glad we did. Wesley was the perfect guide and the trip on a local mill pond was fantastic. We paddled through an old cypress forest while Wesley narrated. It was wonderful. If you have the chance…go!

First time in area and what a pleasant surprise! Such a hidden gem of a place so close to home. The kayak trip with Wes was by far the highlight of our quick getaway. The body of water and trees are serene, an amazing delight. Wes is an incredibly patient, kind and professional individual who loves his 'job'!! Wes - this kayak tour made an impact and a lifetime memory !! Thank you!
If you are in area, you MUST do this kayak tour, totally worth the money and not be missed.

This kayak trip was the first day of our vacation and ended up being the highlight of our entire trip. Wesley Hendley ,owner of Mill Pond Kayak, was a great guide and took us places on Mill Pond that we would not have explored on our own. He had lots of great stories and information along the way. His keen eyes spotted turtles and egrets that we might have missed. Wesley was very easy to work with and stated that he works with small groups, large groups and will customize your experience to whatever you desire. This is something I hope to do again in the future and will bring friends next time.
