Spent two months planning a kayak trip with this outfitter. One week prior to our trip the owner e-mailed me and said that they were no longer available. Then no other correspondence. They left us with no possibilities of finding another operator due to the short notice. My kayaking partner and I had both spent substantial time and money in preparing for this trip. We were sorely let down and it was a ruined vacation. I would not recommend this operator.

As a small organization, we offer day trips, and the occasional overnight experience for dog sledding/winter camping. Unfortunately, this custom trip had to be cancelled two weeks prior to the trip due to an unforeseen staff emergency, which would have prevented the care of our 4 year old, kennel of 55 sled dogs and 4 draft horses, which was explained to our customer and his friend at the time. We would have enjoyed sharing our years of kayak trip leading experience, but a qualified staff person was not available, and the care of our child and animals was the priority. At the time of cancellation, the customer had not yet paid a deposit for the trip and had no financial loss.
