    The tour was awesome thanks to Sophie. What wonderful guide! Sophia is a solid 5 I’m knocking 1 star off as there was there was NO PARKING!!! And the facility doesn’t tell you this ahead of time which to me feels like a scam. If you are driving to the place go VERY EARLY to find a spot & or be prepared to park far away. The parking part of the experience really sucked.

    Loved it. Peter was all smiles and even though there was a thunderstorm mid way, we had a lot of fun. I capsized into the lake twice which added to the fun haha. This was definitely not a beginner kayak, so you've been warned. Peter brought his home made cookies which we ate in the rain by an abandoned church as we waited for the storm to get over. When it did, we took our kayaks and paddled away. Anything you bring will get soaking wet, so dress up accordingly. They have lockers and changing rooms at the meeting point. There's a small cafe there too in case you like it.

    It was my first time kayaking is many many years. The coach was super friendly and explained the surrounding of the lake very well. She was professional and able to tell us the wind and weather conditions. We even played a game at the end and that was very memorable!
