Recently had a friends and family kayak trip and a picnic on the sandbar. Mountain valley guides provided great food, music, and fun! I also did my husband’s 50 th birthday party with mountain valley guides. Everyone loved it!

First everyone meets at the guide shop in downtown Cornwall, and everyone who is kayaking gets a parking pass for the park. The Bannermans tour was amazing as we got close to the island. This is my 2nd time doing this trip.
