One of our very best paddles in 12 years! Water was up and running. Scenery was beautiful. Paddlers need some experience.

A friend and I did this trip on Tuesday and it was incredibly enjoyable and fun. Barnes and Drew from Pinelands Adventure were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. And the kayaking on the river was incredible. Highly recommended!
