Wonderful staff and great facilities/equipment! My wife and I took our 4 & 6 yr old boys and had an excellent trip on the 5.5 mile trip. Everyone we met was extremely friendly. The drive to and from the route wasn’t bad at all (5 mins to put in and 15 mins from take out). Couldn’t have been happier.

This was the most pleasant experience I have had with a rental service. Got the premium Kayak + tandem and they were AMAZING! Everyone was very friendly and they even let us drive in their truck, so we wouldn’t have to be with a bunch of unmasked strangers. Very appreciated! They had reusable trash bags AND waterproof phone cases to borrow at no extra charge, they also recycle! Cleanest outhouses I’ve ever seen too! We loved every minute of our river experience!

Great first kayaking trip! The river was perfect for beginners - nothing crazy but not boring either. Higher Pursuits had a nice selection of rental kayaks so we were able to choose what fit our needs and comfort. Highly recommend!!
