We took the stargazing paddle tour. Being novice paddlers the description of the tour said basic instruction, there was none. Had to cross a busy waterway which was a little unnerving for first timers. Beautiful setting once we got to calmer waters however the real fun started on our paddle back to JOC. The current was dangerously strong and our instructor, while very nice, did not offer helpful tips on how to manage it. Our whole group got separated and that included a family with young children. By the time we regrouped the current was so strong that eventually we all had to get pulled out before we even reached JOC, not to mention our instructor got pulled out by the current and apparently was rescued by boat while the managers at a restaurant had to come and pull us and our equipment out of the water. It is a great concept however they need to rethink their policies especially with regards to children. NO child should be allowed to paddle at night or kyack alone ( no matter what a parent says about their child's ability), they need more instruction and instructors with each group. Our instructor, again a very nice guy, didn't seem to have a handle on the conditions and prior to the start of our adventure said the night before the conditions hadn't been good. We couldn't understand why he would take us on the same route. unsafe and dangerous.
