This was our 3rd anniversary vacation and it was a wonderful adventure. Lisa was excellent in helping us plan the trip. She was very helpful and quick to respond to emails. Our guides, Joey and Isaac were amazing leaders and so enjoyable to be with. The entire trip was well organized by all involved. The scenic rides were breathtaking and staying in the Coeur d'Alene resort was fantastic. The guides for kayaking and white water rafting were delightful as well. All the activities were fun and suitable for all fitness levels. All the guides were knowledgeable and had great attitudes. We had a wonderful trip and have no complaints or suggestions.

We had a great time on our Kayaking trip! The day we went out the lake was pretty choppy and our guides were excellent. They were very aware of the water conditions and modified our trip to ensure our safety without comprimising the length or scenery of the trip. We also had 2 young children (6 and 8) on our trip and the guides were very sensitive to their safety. I would highly recommend ROW Adventure and will definitely use them again when we travel back to Coeur d'Alene!

Our family had a awesome time kayaking the Lake Coeur d'Alene. Our guides did an excellent job training us in maneuvering our kayaks and negotiating the waters on a windy day. We saw nesting and hunting osprey and eagles and herons flying overhead. The trip was a perfect mix of exercise and relaxation. It was an experience our family will not soon forget.

A gentle float trip with a few small rapids makes this a great introduction to rafting or just a fun day on the river. The guides are very friendly, know the river and are careful to make sure everyone is having a great time - novice or more experienced rafters. The river goes through a fairly urban area so wildlife viewing only average but the stories about the state of the art waste water treatment plant on the river are a hoot. Rafts and bus are in good condition, plenty of life jackets. A small enhancement would be to offer cold drinks at the end of the trip (many of the rafting companies in CO do this).

The trip I took with Row Adventures was a 2 hour kayak adventure during the early evening. The guides were informative about the lake and offered good, basic skills if the participant was not familar with a kayak. An added bonus was a champagne toast as the sun set, it was perfect. I would certainly recommend this trip for those folks who have little experience with a kayak and prefer to stay with the group. For those who are more adventurous this experience would probably be too "quiet."
