Perfect Activity Date!

My fiance and I had a great time kayaking and enjoying the calm river and then having a picnic in the park afterwards. Would recommend for a fun time!

Highly Recommended

We really enjoyed our kayaking experience with this company. It’s a great way to experience Cuyahoga river/park. They gave very clear instructions, and her sons were also great little helpers! Nice well cared for gear. Highly recommend, and I will be back. Thank you!

Great Experience

Had a great time. We did the short trip at 5pm on a beautiful Saturday evening. Nice folks who checked us in and got us to where kayaks are launched from. Definitely no graceful way to get out! Bring shoes you don't mind getting wet.

Always Has Been Awesome!

This was our second or third time kayaking with them and it has always been awesome! All staff was super friendly each time we have went and they made sure we knew when to get out of the river and made sure no one had questions before we left. Highly highly highly recommend!

Coolest Company

Been on 2 of their trips so far. And my dog has been on 1 and we plan to hit more ... This is by far the coolest company business and one of the nicest. Helping understanding people!

We had a Blast!

We had a blast! We went kayaking for an hour. The equipment were ready and well organized. We got life jackets and clear instructions. The river wasn’t rough or too deep. It was a nice day ..and I would highly recommend it for anyone interested or willing to go on water for their first time!

Paddle The River
A hidden gem!

We loved this adventure! I'd try to take the earliest possible though before the Float the River Tubers get in the water. Made the last mile a bit like a pinball game. That said, we'd still do it again. It was such an adventure and fun 4.5 miles!

Perfect way to spend the Afternoon!

The day was great! This was my first time kayaking and I loved it! The online reservation process was easy, the staff was friendly and engaging. We did the middle tour (2 hrs) and it was the perfect way to spend the afternoon. Highly recommend.
