BIG NEGATIVE - we purchased a 3 hour trip, and began at 10. The trip took just short of 3 hours, but the earliest scheduled pick up wasn't until 2:00. So 15 of us just sat for an hour and waited to be picked up....More

Did the 3 hour Kinni trip on an overcast day. No one on river...so much fun. Started pouring minutes before finishing. An adventure! Staff friendly and efficient.

I consider myself an excellent kayaker, but this route is definitely NOT for beginners. I would call it a wilderness survival challenge. You will be bruised, scratched, bleeding, and soaked on this trip. You will need to scale a 5 foot tall barbed wire fence...More

My husband and I had a tough afternoon on the Kinni. We're rank amateurs and, although reading their web site thoroughly, had no idea what it would really be like. I would liken their admonishments to a flight attendant's instructions on what to do in...More

Did the 6 hour jungle trip in July. The first half or more of the trip was spent dodging, going under, over and through the downed trees. By the time one could actually kayak, we were too tired and wet to enjoy the scenery. I...More

We arrived a little before 9am and quickly filled out the paperwork. Then we boarded the shuttle, and fifteen minutes later, we were at the river landing, preparing to launch our kayaks. The scenery was gorgeous, and we practically had the river to ourselves. Upon...More
