We took 2 2-person kayaks with our kids (8yo and 11yo) on the 6 mile trip. We probably did more of a "float" than a "paddle", plus we stopped enroute for snacks, so it took us longer than the 2 hours. They called to check...More

It was a stinking hot Saturday in Austin - 100+ so we decided to spend the morning on the water somewhere and what better place than meandering down the lazy Colorado River! Rising Phoenix and Jami were excellent. We took a two person kayak for...More

My wife and I took a two man kayak for their 6-mile trip at 11AM. We did have an appointment/reservation, and were a few minutes late, but they didn't mind. Check in consisted mostly of signing a waiver, getting fitted with a life jacket, paying,...More

There is a 6mile and a 20 something mile day trip available. It is a great trip for anyone, no experience necessary. We went in 65 degree weather and it was still absolutely perfect as you do not have to get wet, but certainly have...More

Hi, great way to spend 3 hours of your day with friends, family and have a relaxing, fun time. Today we went back on the river with Phoenix for about the 6th time over the years. From the minute you book to arriving at the...More

We were three first-time kayakers, two adults (50+ years old) and one 11-year old. We told them we were beginners and originally requested the guide service (as recommended on their site). The owner talked us out of it saying the river is very slow moving...More
