While these guys are really nice and offer a decent little guided trip, they wont rent to you even if you're experienced. If I wanted to paddle, I had to take a guided trip. It was apparent that I had more experience than the girl who was my guide and the group had some really slow paddlers that kept us from getting very far away from town. We did see some eagles pretty close up and the shoreline was pretty, but I could see houses/town just about everywhere we went. Very nice folks though, but pretty expensive considering I signed up for a 3hr boat tour that took us to see a lot of wildlife for just a little bit more money.
