My husband and I rented bikes on our last day in Galena. We had a blast, nice bikes and the travel was better than expected. Will definitely visit again, and when we do I want to try the kayaks.

The people that run this place are very friendly and make sure that you have a good time. We rented a canoe for our adventure, but they also mentioned numerous other things to do in the area. Will definitely do business with them again.

Fortunate to be with family who went on this excursion before. It would have been a bewildering experience, to say the least, due to the lack of information given at the office or on the ride to the drop off point to begin your kayak...More
