“Excellent and well done”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We had a kayak trip booked at 1:30 on a Friday on the calmer "lower five miles" portion of the river. The weather looked iffy with a line of large thunder storms approaching. we watch wether map with the staff, it looked bad. They offered a rebooking Saturday morning at 10:30. It went wonderfully! beautiful weather, nice river suitable for any level, courteous and professional staff. Actual river time was a little less than two hours. A great trip on a beautiful river. We plan to try the faster and somewhat more thrilling upper three miles next time.

“Perfect”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Arrived without a reservation, not what I would recommend, but we got lucky. I liked parking my car where we get out and they take you upstream. Very friendly staff and owners are there working along side them, liked seeing that. Great gear, mad river, all you will need or want. Bring a cooler it got a little warm, July and all. Our church uses this group and I will use them again. Off the beaten path, however you don't get all the rif raf from all other float companies.

“Great kayaking!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Not knowing any outfitters in the area we chose Wild Goose from a guide book. From the start the owner talked to me about our skill level and what we wanted from our experience, then she made recommendations. Trusting her experience and knowledge was a great decision. She recommended a tandem kayak, not the canoe as we originally thought we wanted, and the 8 mile trip. It was wonderful! The first 3 miles were the most exciting, with some easy rapids and beautiful scenery. The next 5 miles were beautiful and relaxing with occasional faster moving water. It was a terrific experience that has given a taste for more! Their location may seem out of the way, but once your finished with your trip your car is right there for you to just load up and head home. No waiting around. It was perfect. Thanks for the information and experience Wild Goose!

“Great Time on the River”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We rented two canoes for myself , spouse, daughter and her boyfriend and my grandog. Everyone at Wild Goose was very nice and the trip turned out great. Wild Goose is a little way off the road but worth it. You leave your car at the take out spot and they shuttle you to the start. Great river and reall nice people. Can't wait to do it again and it will be with Wild Goose.
