Had an amazing time paddling in the area. We rented kayaks and equipment for a 4 days trip with friends. Larry provides all the gear needed and is very knowledgeable on the region and the wildlife to be seen. I highly recommend it!

Larry is a funny and knowledgeable guy! Safety is a top priority for him which I truly value when it comes to water activity. We also didn't have to worry about logistics, he dealt with everything! Thank you
