Bert took 5 of us upriver-- Gave those of us who hadn't kayaked the river before some pointers. Bert uses quality boats-- they're used but are high quality. We had a 3-hour paddle. He's flexible and accommodating re: timing, duration of trip, etc. Highly recommend.

Bert's Boats is awesome. We parked our car at the finish location of the canoe trip. We were then picked up by a shuttle and taken to the starting point. This way once we completed our trip we would have our car waiting for us...More
