We took 2 2-person kayaks with our kids (8yo and 11yo) on the 6 mile trip. We probably did more of a "float" than a "paddle", plus we stopped enroute for snacks, so it took us longer than the 2 hours. They called to check...More

There is a 6mile and a 20 something mile day trip available. It is a great trip for anyone, no experience necessary. We went in 65 degree weather and it was still absolutely perfect as you do not have to get wet, but certainly have...More

Hi, great way to spend 3 hours of your day with friends, family and have a relaxing, fun time. Today we went back on the river with Phoenix for about the 6th time over the years. From the minute you book to arriving at the...More
