    Active way to tour the Riverwalk. Matt was a great guide. Told stories and kept us away from the boats. I enjoyed the kayaking and the tour.

    This was such a fun time on the river! The booking was easy, and the staff was very friendly and helpful! The paddle down the river was everything I hoped it would be, and the kayak was high quality and easy to control! I highly recommend them!

    This is a great are to see wildlife in the city and a great number of people living here don't even know it exists. I suggest doing one of the early evening cardio kayak classes during the summer and you'll get to see herons, seagulls, and maybe a coyote. If you're an experienced kayaker you don't have to stay with the class. Go early and paddle as far north or south as you can in the first 50 minutes of the 1.5 hour session.
