A beautiful location even in poor weather. As well as an expert instructor Joe has great knowledge of the local area. Once you get to on side of the lake, Joe takes you on the short walk with plenty of stories of the historical and geological landmarks. Always felt safe with Joe's instruction and his attention to health and safety.

Had a magic kayak trip with my son and daughter. Joe was very professional and had a great sense of humour about him. We felt very safe with Joe out on the water and would highly recommend him as a guide.
