If you have never been in a kayak or are an inexperienced kayaker don't do it. First of all, there is no guide in the water with you and no way to summon help. They drop you off and wait to see if you make...More

Thanks Roberto for your review. You are 100% correct this is a self guided trip on the Shenandoah. Definitely not like jumping into the pool. It is an outdoor experience and nature is in charge. We are glad to hear the rest of your trip...More

Thanks for your review Zoogig. You are 100% correct we do have a no cancelation policy. Hopefully others can benefit from your sharing. We definitely share this with everyone that makes a reservation but one more way to communicate is always good.

Not recommended for the inexperienced kayaker! They have you sign waivers before they do anything, and at the river they give very basic instructions on the river bank. But once you get in the water they expect you to remember what was said and maneuvers...More

Hello Smbry, Sorry your experience was not the best. That's a great suggestion to demonstrate strokes in the water. Unfortunately that section is flowing a bit so our demonstration would quickly move away. All of our trips are unguided and we attempt to make everyone...More

7 miles down the river. You are dropped off and then met down the river, paddling all the way and there are some Rapids, which you must maneuver through. Did get wet, enjoyed it!
