While I appreciated the service of taking a canoe down the river and being picked up and driven back to the starting point, there were a few details that were left out. This was our first foray into this type of activity and I was...More

Ages 12 & Under are required to wear a life jacket, but anyone 13 & up we recommend wearing a life jacket, but they are not required to wear it. Just required to have it on the boat.
