Overall a nice experience but way too crowded for my taste. The river was absolutely packed with other people on boats and because it is so narrow it was hard to avoid other people. Boats were literally crashing into each other and into trees on the shore. I think if you are brand new to kayaking/canoeing you would be better off on the lake where it is more open water and you can spread out. If you do choose to come here, would definitely recommend going DOWN river and NOT upriver. We went up river and there was literally no where to stop or pull over because it was all private cottages and private land on both sides. We packed a big lunch and had no where to eat it. I would HIGHLY recommend going down river instead to either Annie Williams park or the main Bracebridge falls - both places have public docks, playgrounds for kids, and picnic tables where you can swim, have lunch, and stretch out your legs for a bit. Both of those places are also pretty close by

Nice, personable staff to help get us on our way. We enjoyed our time on the river. We did an hour to the falls and it was a nice relaxing canoe. Would come back again.

Booked a paddle board session online, called to make sure that if the weather was really bad that we could reschedule (if there were thunderstorms or something reasonable) and the man who answered the phone was super short and rude and said “well you wouldn’t get a refund” which wasn’t what I was asking and he didn’t sound confident that if we needed to reschedule due to weather, that he would accommodate that. Whatever. I let that go and took my chances. Arrived at 9:45am like the email states, and the man at the door was rude to us and asked us to wait until closer to 10am…we just followed the email instructions. Didn’t appreciate the lack of customer service. Thankfully the session we booked was self-guided so we didn’t have to spend 4 hours with a rude instructor or something. The river was nice and the equipment was good. We enjoyed our time but we really didn’t like the attitude of the man in the store that morning. I have had encounters with a tall man from there before too and he is always rude, sarcastic and not understanding or patient at all. I rarely leave bad reviews but the people working there definitely aren’t the friendliest. They have such a nice little area and set up so it’s really unfortunate! Maybe if the customer service improves, I will keep them in mind in the future.

Just got off the phone with an extremely rude, impatient individual who was exasperated that I dared to ask for a tracking number for my order. They gave the carrier my billing address as a shipping address in spite of the correct info filled out on their online form. He actually began yelling at me when I told him I would not go to the effort to go on Puraletor and find my information. The rudeness and sarcasm was shocking. Will never deal with this company again. I am hoping a manager or owner reads this - I can't believe that this person is representing this business.

We had an exceptional day ice climbing with VERY knowledgeable, friendly, staff. We showed up nervous and left feeling like pros. We recieved help from the moment we arrived as we put on equipment, to the moment we returned. The information before the trip was thorough; the email told us what gas station to stop at before arriving and included a food recommendation. Dress warm, pack a lunch, pack a camera, do a bit of research, and be a normal person who knows the staff dont control the weather! We will definitely be coming back.

My family and I wanted to try Fat Biking for the first time this winter. Peter, our guide, was very knowledgeable with fat biking, teaching us the different techniques for efficient biking, how to shift your weight a certain way in order to fat bike the trails properly. We were beginners in the mountain biking department, so this intro to fat biking was just perfect for beginners and gave us a little challenge as well. Definitely would do again and come back in the summer to try paddle boarding!
The only downside to the experience was the unpredictable weather the night before. Freezing rain conditions made the trails somewhat icy, that required studded tires for our trip. They weren’t organized with the changing weather conditions and weren’t prepared with studded tires on the bikes in advance, therefore had to wait an extra hour before heading out. But was worth the wait as having the studded tires made for a more enjoyable experience.

I really enjoyed working with LIV Outside. I booked 2 of their guides for a canoe trip for my retreat. My guests had never canoed before and they loved the experience.

I will definitely work with them again next season. Great service and vibe 💫
