Great experience. 10/10 would recommend. We kayaked at split rock with Blake as our guide. He was really patient and relaxed with us first timers but also took us up on to the shore in some fun spots and got us adventuring. To book stuff you just gotta email or call and they’ll get back to ya. Also should mention that we felt really safe. Blake’s a very knowledgeable guide. It might seem expensive but 100% worth it. Would recommend and will do more tours with Blake and positive energy outdoors again

We showed up 15 minutes early because we weren’t sure where we were going and needed to rent boots. Owner was clearly upset we were early. No clearly marked place to park. When we were walking to meet our group we weren’t clear of where to stand. Owner thought we were on the trail and got upset. We realize safety comes first but clearly marking areas would avoid confusion. We loved working with Charles he was super friendly and informative. The owner made us feel unwelcome and like we were a bother.

We had an amazing dog sledding experience with the crew! Blake even provided us with some more appropriate cold weather gear to make sure we were completely comfortable for the trip! This is a MUST do. No doubt we will be back very soon!

When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by all the pups and the staff! We have been on other dogsledding adventures and this was superb. If you like a hands on experience, this is the one for you. The dogs are friendly and the philosophy of this business ranks high on my list of good ethics. Positive Energy Outdoors treats their dogs well and with kindness.

I had a fantastic dog sledding adventure! I was a solo rider and thoroughly enjoyed it. HIGHLY recommend this company. The staff, dogs, and scenery were simply amazing. Blake was so kind and knowledgeable - really appreciated riding in the sled with him. You will not regret this experience!
