My family of five had an awesome time kayaking and caving with John. I was so impressed with John's ability to make things super fun for all three of my kids: the natural complainer (12 years old), the daredevil (10), and the one who is often scared to try new things (8). He was encouraging and warm to the youngest especially. Also, John reworked the trip to account for rain in the forecast and just did an excellent job planning an adventure that was just the right amount of time, just the right amount of challenging, and totally engaging for all of us. Highly recommend.

John and his cute dog took me and my kids to explore a cave. We all loved it! John was enthusiastic and patient. He gave easy to follow directions about how to move across the caves, which was very helpful for us with zero experience. He even accommodated my idea of planting a letter for the kids to find from their favorite book characters. My kids could not stop talking about the adventure. Thank you so much John!

We did a cave adventure with John. He was patient and encouraging with my two daughters who were a little scared at first. We had a fanatic time and can't wait to go again!

John is an excellent adventure guide. He took our family with ages ranging from mid-sixties to a three year old and accommodated everyone’s skill and desire for fun. I highly recommend you call or email him to discuss your goals for your trip, and he will design a plan tailored to you. I cannot recommend him enough.
