Tell you the truth, I couldn't think of anything better to do on a gloomy, overcast, misty morning than going kayaking for a few hours on Scorton Creek. We had a wonderful morning checking all the nooks and crannies kayaking this Creek. And the Ridaway...More

Thanks so much for the kind words. The overcast days are sometimes the best days to be out on the water. It's calm, wildlife is more active, and you usually have it all to yourself. Thanks again and we hope to see you next season!

Great time on the Scorton River. Mike's knowledge of the area and nature was very interesting. Had some great bird sightings including a northern gannet! Well maintained equipment. Highly recommend RideAway.

Everyone enjoyed the kayaking experience, especially my 'tween' granddaughter. The water was crystal clear in most areas, abundance of birds, and the overall experience to be on the water. There was a place we pulled up to go swimming which was another added treat.
