The BEST day out! I was lucky enough to have a 1-2-1 experience as it was out of season yet they still ran the tour for me and I felt incredibly well looked after. Seth my guide was super friendly and put me at ease instantly. He knew everything about everything as was telling me lots of facts at the same time as giving me space to paddle freely. I couldn’t recommend this tour enough!

Great trip! Our guides Seth and Dana were excellent and made the day really fun. We were novices, and they were happy to answer our questions and offer a hand when needed. The views were scenic and the other kayakers made a fun group. It was a memorable diversion from the usual Vegas activities. Highly recommend.

Team was very high on communication. I inadvertently had my phone on airplane mode, and they took the time to call the hotel to confirm our reservations. Reggie and Celeste did a great job on their parts of the tour. Tour was the right length and did not push anyone’s physical limitations that I could see. Great job by all!
