It was a great kayaking trip, though muddy. Loved how cautious our guide was with our safety and going out. His lunch was amazing.

Beautiful trip down an easy going river. Casual hike to the waterfall where we waded under the falls and captured plenty of awesome pics. Our guide, Matt, was knowledgeable, helpful and had a great sense of humor! Highly recommend this trip!
