Randy was great - patient - knowledgeable - I didn't know there are over 25 ways to paddle the kayak - The lake at Wasilla was perfect - all in all a very good experience - I would highly recommend it to any one at any age ( I am 64 )

The guide/instructor is very knowledgeable and good at teaching the basics. He explains everything very thoroughly and once in the water makes sure everyone is safe. Over all the class was a very satisfying experience. I learned a lot about the proper way to paddle and to maneuver the kayak. If there is a second course or a guided tour on the water, I will go for it.

Three of us in our group and we had a wonderful experience. Above and beyond expectations. Jim was an amazing instructor. Learned a lot and saw so much including schools of salmon!!! Jim took the time with each of us instructing on technique and giving constructive helpful feedback. I could barely kayak out from the starting point but by the end I could do a lot more.

The instructor was over an hour late, didn't spend much time with us, and the groupon price is the same as their usual price per the sign on the door.

Small place right on the lake. It's kind of easy to miss when driving from Wasilla, but really easy to see if you're driving from Palmer. The instruction was great though! We learned a lot in a very short amount of time with plenty of time for questions and discussion. We had plenty of time to paddle around the lake a bit too. Really helped us prep for our future sea kayaking trips. Great experience!!
