“Terrific outfitters”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We decided on the fly to go on the river, but not sure what we wanted to do: kayak? canoe? raft? Showed up, didn't need reservations, we told them what we wanted, our experience level and the time we had to spend on the water and they were like "No problem! Here you go..." and got us into a canoe, telling us we could do 2 hours or 4 and we could decide once we were out on the river.

Price was excellent, and they even had a little shop where we could buy a waterproof camera, sunhat, waterproof bags, Gatorade and peanuts for snacking, etc.

Service was friendly and knowledgeable and I would recommend this outfit wholeheartedly, they made it as painless as possible for an affordable price.

“Take me home contry road”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

I love kayaking, and I wanted a sit on top tandem kayak. I wish it was self baling so take a sham wow with you. The put in and take out were flaw less, the guide gave perfect instructions. I swamped the boat the first rapid (they are very mild) and my butt was wet the rest of the way. It was hot, so it was easy to stay cool.

“A blast!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Took a 7 mile ride on a 4-person raft (3 ladies total). The folks at Front Royal Cane were great to work with, made everything clear and easy. We got a ride to our drop-off, a brief explanation about using the raft, and set out on a beautiful trip down the Shenandoah. There were very few people on the river early in the morning, and what a beautiful place. We did have to use our oars lots more than I expected, but it was OK. We had a wait a bit for the bus to pick us up after, but they came right away when I called them. Highly recommend!

“The Best Day!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Having never kayaked before and holding a pretty substantial fear of rapids, I was pretty apprehensive about taking a solo trip down the river. The staff was friendly and reassuring, giving me plenty of tips and personal stories to calm my nerves. This river trip turned out to be one of the highlights of my vacation: the river was calm and easily manageable with beautiful scenery the entire way. The #1 trip option is perfect for first-timers and allows you to paddle or float the short distance at your own pace back to FRCC.

“Excellent time kayaking!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We rented a tandem kayak for a 7-mile ride. The service was excellent, equipment was well kept and the experience well-managed. The team was friendly, very knowledgeable and happy to help. We enjoyed the free granola bars too! After a 2-hour ride down the river...with a few exciting moments enjoying the "rapids" (easy!) and taking in the views and wildlife...we came to shore and within minutes the bus came to get us. Great store for souvenir T's too! Highly recommend!
