The tour was great and will highly recommend it to anyone with or w/o kids. The only minus it was too short. For that price, it could be a longer trip. Even though we didn't see all the fauna promised it was amazing.

Overpriced for nothing
Aleta_S, Feb 2023
If you go to the park it is much cheaper to rent from other companies. There are other companies that you can rent kayaks from. The price from other companies is less.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Aleta, We are sorry to hear that you are not pleased with our pricing. However, we would like to clarify that our company does not offer kayak rentals. We specialize in educational guided eco tours, where our knowledgeable guides share their expertise on the local flora and fauna, as well as the history surrounding the stunning Silver River. Additionally, our tours are done in 100% clear kayaks which provide an unobstructed view of the beauty that surrounds us. These kayaks are made from high-quality materials that are specifically designed for maximum visibility of the underwater environment, providing an unparalleled view of the aquatic life and ecosystem beneath the surface. While we understand that there may be other companies in the area that offer kayak rentals at a lower price point, we believe that our clear kayaks and the experience we provide is both unique and valuable. We strive to provide our customers with a one-of-a-kind experience that not only educates them about the environment but also allows them to connect with nature in a meaningful way. We hope that you will consider joining us for a tour in the future and see for yourself the value that we offer!
Great trip!
