We took the Transquaking River tour with Susan (one of the owners). The 5 mile trip offers an abundance of beauty and nature in and of itself, but Susan was able to take it to another level with her outgoing personality, knowledge of the natural habitat, civil war history and yes....ghost tales!! This was our second kayaking trip with Blackwater Adventures......it doesn’t get any better than this! Thank you again Susan for a fabulous day of paddling ( and a great recommendation for dinner ) Cindy and Randy

the Blackwater NWA is beautiful and our kayak rental with Blackwater Adventures was great. the Kayaks we used were Pungo wilderness kayaks and they performed great and were very comfortable. the staff answered many questions and showed us how to make seat adjustments. Very friendly group of folks.

Smooth kayak rental process. Quality kayaks that are hard to flip. Highly recommend. The Blackwater River was super easy to maneuver, good for beginners.

A pleasant guided kayaking tour on the the Little Blackwater River. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, pointing out wildlife, giving historical background, explaining aspects of the ecosystem, and more. Great for beginners, no kayaking experience necessary. The flow of water is negligible, more like kayaking on a lake, but it apparently can be more challenging on a windy day.

Went on a kayak tour of the Blackwater area in early September. The kayak was really nice and comfortable. The whole process was easy and the staff was friendly. The tour guide was great with lots of good stories and pointed out nature features and animals. The only improvement would be to upgrade to a real bathroom instead of a port-a-potty.
