What They’re Saying
TFirst time kayaking… best experience ever!!!! The tour was amazing…the tour guide, Capt LJ, was very knowledgeable, attentive, courteous and gave me great tips how to get my kayak going in the best and safe possible way. We had a very friendly group of people touring with us and I felt very safe and accomplished. I totally recommend Capt. LJ Adventures services and if you are looking for something safe and fun to do with your family and friends over the summer this is the place to start with. After my great experience kayaking I can definitely say that I will go back for more. Thanks to Capt. LJ and all her crew.
LJ was so patient with our kids, she made sure to go over all safety rules and lesson while keeping kids focused despite it being early morning. My two teens who are normally fearful of new experiences did not hesitate to go in the kayak thanks to the humor, thoroughness andreassurance from LJ. Definitely recommend for teens as I feel it provided a confidence booster in my teens and had them actual see wildlife and experience it and not watching it on TV or their phones!
Capt. LJ takes her time to make sure all her travelers are safe and comfortable. She has a wealth of knowledge to share as you paddle along the canal to the lock, through it, and back. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
