We spent about two hours on the river. It was mostly pretty flat with just a couple of class 1 and 2 rapids which added some fun. For the most part you didn't really need to paddle. You could just let the river take you....More

We did not do the overnight Canoe trip. We were picked up from the hotel in am. The concierge at the hotel you are staying at can be a very good resource. Hope this helps.
