It was a really good time. People were nice and the adventure was fun. If your tired of paddling alone, this is a good option. Shareing time with people with the same interests.

Everything was provided, very fun and informative. Relaxing paddle in the dark was amazing with the moon and we saw a large meteor!

We had a really nice time at the Homeschool Day learning about wildflowers! It was our first one that we attended and we all enjoyed it. The kids had a great time learning, playing and exploring with crafts, games and nature walks! We would definitely like to join another one!

I organized this event (pontoon ride) for my meet-up group. They absolutely loved it. We had a picnic dinner beforehand, then this! The volunteer was fabulous with so much information - history, flora and fauna. Thank you!
