"Great day in total. Perfect weather, reasonably good equipment, nice setting, and friendly participants and guide. He was helpful, thoughtful, safety-conscious, and reasonably informative. Wouldn't have minded if he provided a bit more content about the places we paddled; local history, current environmental challenges/initiatives, local flora, etc. The guide's strength was his knowledge of the local fauna encountered. One helpful logistics item would be for the kayak company to hand out or email a page size map from their business of the location. "
