Great Birthday Adventure
Jul 2021
The staff at Nachland are great! Helpful and polite. We enjoyed our 4 hour rental, but being novices, went a little too far up the creek and had to really hustle to get back in time! Totally our fault - we'll know better next time. Also, be aware that there's not really an easy place to get out and stretch your legs. Harrod's Park has an easily missed "put-in" along the creek, but there isn't a place to beach your kayak - at least not on the stretch we kayaked. Otherwise we had a great time and highly recommend Nachland!

Fun for all ages
Jul 2021 • Family
Such a fun trip! I’ve never kayaked so was really afraid I couldn’t do it, but the staff were so joyful in helping me! They were so encouraging and kind! We were a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed our 4 hour trip! No one fell in the water, but being a planner, I had purchased a dry bag from Dick’s Sporting Goods for $15 to put our phones and car keys inside. Don’t let it stop you if you’re overweight either, the kayaks can hold 300 pounds and are quite stable to be in. The staff help you get in and out of the boat safely and joyfully! I’m not even being sarcastic, they were great! Being on the water was peaceful, as Harrods Creek is very still water. We saw lots of turtles and birds, neat birds nests under the bridge, and just lush greenery all around! Also, we were told not to leave anything of value in our car because there have been break-ins up under the bridge. We had no problem but just letting unaware visitors know. Highly recommend this business!

The owners were super friendly and completely understanding when we got back way later than planned because we misunderstood long it would take. Highly recommend !!

Friendly, informative, and well-cared for equipment
My family had never been kayaking before. We were so pleased with everything and everyone at Nachand Kayak. We can't wait to go back.

Lots to enjoy

I have been to kayak several times with different groups. It has always been a great experience. The equipment is clean and sanitized - the staff is professional and nice- and Harrods is pretty and lots to see. Follow up with dinner on the river at Captains Quarters and you have A perfect day.

Great Place for Kayaking
Sep 2020 • Friends
This was a great place for Kayaking. The staff ( Elisa) was so helpful. I plan to return for another fun kayak experience. If you want a fun activity to so, I recommend you make a reservation at Nachand.

Fun in my own backyard!
Sep 2020
I have passed their location and sign many times without ever realizing what was there. I wanted to go Kayaking over the holiday so I went online to make a reservation. I thought I had put in for Monday and the time I wanted but when it confirmed, it gave me a Tuesday confirmation day and time. I called and Forrest answered the phone and was very helpful and polite. He explained that someone would resolve my issue and get back with me. The owner (I assume) emailed me with options for my reservation which ended up working out fine. We arrived and were helped in and out of our kayaks with no issue.

We took the four hour trip and the route was easy to navigate and not many areas too shallow to go through. There was a lot of traffic on the creek so many were taking advantage of the holiday and the beautiful weather but it made for a little congestion along the way in some points.

The workers spoke of a park about 2 hours in but we aren't sure if we ever found it. A guide map might be helpful in the future. We did encounter two different boats with motors about an hour into our trip and it didn't appear to be an area that a boat with a motor should go since it was shallow and there were many canoes and kayaks in their path.

We had an excellent time and enjoyed the route as well as the staff. I will definitely be going again.

Parking is limited but they emailed me letting me know the parkling lot was full and where there was alternative parking (which wasn't far). I was glad they did because the driveway to their location is gravel and narrow so not something you want to go down only to not find any parking. The pricing is very reasonable so make sure and tip your staff!

Thanks for giving me and my friends something fun to do in our own backyard!

Great 4 hour kayaking experience!
Aug 2020 • Family
We had a great time! Easy making the reservation & easy to find. Small lot for parking. Also if taking children I recommend bringing a hand pump, just in case water gets in their kayak. We were gone for the entire 4 hours:) Sore the next day but worth it!!

Customer Service needs work.
Jul 2020
Was a mostly enjoyable 4 hour trip. Prices are reasonable, booked online and everything was ready when we showed up.
Employees were not wearing masks, despite two of them working in same trailer when we returned. We also had to pull ourselves out on the ramp as they did not come out to assist us when we returned. Some things to know since you likely won't be able to get ahold of anyone to ask questions. You set out from and return to the same place, so save time and energy for the row back. The waterfall that their workers recommend is on private property and you may get yelled at or worse if you try to actually go to it (we heeded the signs and did not trespass). As far as getting a hold of anyone at this business to get info about the rentals or how they work, good luck. I tried calling and leaving messages, using the contact form on their website, and Facebook Messenger multiple times over the course of 7 days. I got one response via messenger asking me for my phone number, but never received a call and all further messages were ignored. As I said above, the actual canoeing was enjoyable, but as a business they have a lot of growing up to do if they want positive word of mouth.
