Lexie, Kyle, Orian and Isabella were great instructors willing to accommodate our enthusiastic group. They were also extremely patient and positive. This is a great introduction to ww kayaking! Looking forward to any similar offerings as I progress in this sport. Thanks!

Easy to reserve our kayaks on-line; great price and super friendly staff! Half the price of other kayaking adventures and so easy to access from the Bend location. We are locals and will do again when visitors return!!

Great day. Very enjoyable. Just take your time more. Go get Over paddling instructions slowly. My jacket was hooked to the seat incorrectly.. no one helped me. Fun time though.

Exciting, shocking, mesmerizing, exhausting, exhilarating....all these words accurately describe what I experienced during the women’s white water kayaking weekend. The instructors are amazing & if you don’t understand from one, there is another that can explain it differently. It was on my bucket list & I’m so glad I did it! Definitely will be back again!!
