The sunset paddle was so much fun. Very informational and enjoyable!! THe sunset was very nice also that evening!! Definitely recommend. She is quite knowledgeable also!!


Lovely sunset kayak trip along the north shore with Dawn! She is very knowledgeable about local geology and Lake Erie. A stop at Pebble Beach to find fossils was a fun addition to the trip. Highly recommend this outing with this company.

My sister and I had a wonderful time kayaking with a small group around about half of the island at a reasonable, family-friendly pace. Dawn was a wonderful, knowledgeable and laid-back tour guide who incorporated interesting historic and geologic facts along the way. We stopped part way for a short swim at a rocky beach where beautiful granite rocks and fossils could be found. Loved this tour, and will definitely be back again!


Dawn was amazing.... friendly and very knowledgeable! I highly recommend this tour and will do it again in the future!


Dawn confirmed my reservation immediately and communicated professionally. I was glad that she didn't ask to cancel when I was the only person who booked. She seemed to know a lot, but talked mostly about what interested me.


The trip was nice. Sunset was gorgeous! Tour guide was very informative and friendly! Would definitely recommend.
