Two adults and a twelve year old. A three hour paddle on the lake, a great experience and very enjoyable. Paul the instructor was extremely knowledgeable about his watercraft and local history. Certainly go again.

Paul's 1/2 day introduction to bushcraft and canoeing was a real high-point of this stag trip (best not discuss the low-points). Delicious bush-style eating, beautiful scenery and a laid-back but capable and knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended. Thanks Paul!
