Very unorganized! It took them one hour to try and find usable kayaks. Their equipment is scattered throughout the property, filthy and filled with rancid water. They charge an additional $10 per person for drop off or pick up so they aren't a better deal than other businesses. They gave my son a kayak paddle when he was on a paddle board. Find another company to use!

Q&A with Ben Kvanli, Founder and Teacher

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We lead the youngest ever kayaker to run the Grand Canyon. 9-year-old Brett Venable set the record in 1992 by running all of the rapids except Lava in his kayak.

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?
Pioneering adventure therapy for wounded war Veterans has shown the therapeutic effects of the water. Seeing these heroes not only get out of the hospital, but get back to living life to the fullest makes all of our efforts worth it.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Joining our club makes paddling less expensive, less work, and more fun than renting or buying your own boat. In addition, you will get personal attention from caring pioneers of paddling, and be proud of ... your own accomplishments in the sport. You will [be] a part of a club [that] fosters community participation from wounded war Veterans, everyone in the family, beginners, [and] Olympians.
