It was a nice enough day to be on the water! It was me and two twelve year olds. My only problem is that the boats don’t really go very fast when you pedal. Which I can understand- you don’t really want people crashing into...More

Been wanting to go kayaking next to the Cynthia Mitchell woods pavilion. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Go early right when it opens since it’s summertime in Houston!

Kayaking was fun and safe. The price is very good for the time that you get. I definitely recommend this if you are trying to learn before going into an open area.
