    5 star ratingPaddlefest was a wonderful opportunity to try out a variety of kayaks and paddle boards as many times as I wanted without feeling hurried. Thanks for the opportunity! The live music and food truck made it even more fun and festive!

    5 star ratingWe had such a wonderful experience with Headwaters Kayak!!! We are from out of state and Headwaters went above and beyond by holding our kayaks for 6 months until we were able to pick them up. Communication in this time from was second to none. They were extremely helpful with our kayak pick up at the store. Very patient and able to answer all our questions. Then, out at the lake, they were awesome with the kids getting into the water and teachinng us how to use our new boats. Would highly recommend them!!! We had a great time!

    5 star ratingBill, along the for the ride, with Abby (our fearless leader), were fantastic. Abby is extremely helpful and supportive. Bill was able to name just about every bird out on the Delta this morning. We saw a couple of Great Horned Owls, many, many fowl and my favorite was looking up at the dozens of flocks of birds heading who knows where (Bill knew). The picture you see is the point where we turned around and paddled back to the dock. I call that photo The Bridge to Nowhere.
