Awesome experience for kayaking and seeing wildlife along the river. Great introduction to kayaking with lots of safety instruction at the start, such as practicing a kayak flip exit and learning basic paddle maneuvers. David was an amazing instructor and made sure we all felt safe and comfortable before going on the river.

We loved that the rapids were almost constant. Rarely was there calm water which made it exciting the entire time!
Incredible trip & lovely family business

This trip was truly incredible! My boyfriend was more experienced than me, so I was quite scared at first, but our guide ("Bob") made me feel so at ease, he was very experienced and kind. And it was amazing to see the wildlife from this perspective, we even saw a monkey swim! Besides, he made some really nice pictures and videos for us/of us which we received for free. Also his family was really kind by the way, because (I think it was) his wife cooked a lovely meal for us and he showed us how they prepare their food, such as sugarcane. He also showed us the river from their backyard, which was a beautiful sight. Super grateful for this amazing experience! Definitely recommend!
Expérience merveilleuse

Expérience merveilleuse! On a adoré de le faire en solo avec un guide que pour nous! Tous le personnel était super gentil et disponible. Guide expérimenté, connaisseur et amateur de la nature, merci Éric ! Collation très bonne et dégustation de jus de cannes à sucre. Merci pour tout!
