Had a great weekend learning basic kayaking skills and rescue on lake Brienz.
Dave is a very experienced and knowledgeable guide, and he really cares about making sure that you absorb the techniques and improve upon them. He also has the right gear for the water and weather conditions to keep you comfortable.
The day is adventurous, scenic, with good company and passes quickly. Dave always has the next lesson ready, or helping you improve on the current one. He is very friendly, and an excellent source of information about Interlaken and its surroundings as well.
Looking forward to my next time.

It's been a rainy summer in Interlaken, and our kayak tour day was one of them, but we were outfitted with wet suits and jackets, so were comfortable in spite of the light rain. The scenery was beautiful, the guides friendly and knowledgeable, pointing out things to see and suggesting and demonstrating better ways and form with regard to kayaking skills. Absolutely recommend!

I participated on a beginner course that last for two days. It was awesome. Dave was very friendly and had lot of patience with beginners although he has many years of kayak experience. It was a great adventure, really fun time on a beautiful lake. Big thanks! I'll go back for sure.

We had a half day tour with Dave earlier this month and we loved it! Despite the rain the trip was amazing, gorgeous views and a great way to spend the morning! I was a little nervous as I had never been kayaking before but I felt completely safe and reassured throughout! Dave provided us with wetsuits and gave us lots of information about how to control the kayaks and get the most out of them. Dave is very knowledgeable about the area and so told us stories and answered all of our questions during the trip. He recommended some great things to do whilst we were there. The trip was a fantastic experience and we would definitely recommend this company!
