Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor Jennifer, and of course for your lovely comments! We have so much fun with our guests on the water that we sometimes forget we're 'working'! lol Hope to see you this summer!

We booked the kayak tour of Ellenwood lake with Becky at the tail end of our holiday in Yarmouth and it was worth waiting for. It was a lovely still sunny warm morning and Becky took us around the lake pointing out flora and fauna of interest, after a full safety talk. Becky took us at an easy going paddling rate and it was enjoyable for the whole family. The lake was still and quite at 10 am when we started and remained like this for the entire tour, which finished at 12 as it was mid September

We had a lovely morning kayaking with Becky on ellenwood lake. We brought our kids, ages 1 and 3, and Becky was amazing with them. Both parents & kids enjoyed the outing! The lake was beautiful and serene and Becky shared all her knowledge with us about the lake.

I booked this in December as a treat for my wife. We hadn't kayaked in 4 years. This was perfect. Becky supplied perfect weather, great equipment, and calm waters. We toured Ellenwood Park. As a tour guide she was extremely knowledgeable, and always made sure my wife was doing well. We circumnavigated the lake and learned of its history, and it's future. She took us into little coves where we discovered painted turtles backing in the sun on the rocks and through lush patches of water lilies. I highly recommend this trip to any and everyone, whether you are a novice, beginner, or experienced kayaker.

It was just right for the whole family. Lots to see, easygoing paddling, and a very nice informative guide. Our second time in two summers - we highly recommend it and will be back.

We recognize how valuable every minute of vacation time is and we thank you for spending some of yours with us and especially for coming back to us for two summers in a row! It is a humbling and satisfying feeling to know that you and your sons chose us as your 'go to' activity while in the area! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time on the water with us and we hope to see you back again next year! Hopefully next summer you will join us on our award winning Yarmouth Harbour Tour! Have a great winter!
