What Our Customers Are Saying…

  • 5 star ratingThis is the best place to rent kayaks while in the Lodi area. Their equipment is top of the line, you literally launch from a cement dock and roll down into the water on rollers. You get to kayak the beautiful McCulloumy River which is so beautiful and very easy. We have gone out with this company so many times and they never disappoint. They are the BEST

    5 star ratingMy first time kayaking on Lake Lodi and Mokelumne River and participating in the women's wildlife tour--it was great. About 15 of us launched our kayaks from the fabulous boat launch--the best I've ever seen--from the dock and paddled for 2 hours on a 4-mile trip. The weather was beautiful, the river wound through vineyards and other beautiful scenery, the guides/staff were great and provided tasty snacks! Couldn't have been better. I plan to add this monthly tour to my kayak to-do list!

    5 star ratingWe kayaked on Lodi Lake and the Mokelumne River. Watching the full moon rise through the branches of an oak tree was beautiful. Had a great time and will definitely do it again. Shout out to Taylor and Josh who made it even more enjoyable.

  • 5 star ratingPaddle boarding was one of many activities we did on this day in celebration of a 30th Birthday! We had 8 adults and two small children who rode on their parent’s boards! The staff was friendly, efficient and very helpful! The lake and river were beautiful & serene! We did just a one hour paddle on this trip...out in the river to a sand bar! Played in the water, then hopped back on our boards! A nice little work out! So fun& relaxing!

    5 star ratingKayaking by moonlight is a unique experience. It's relaxing and romantic being on the dark water and getting to see the nature and sights around you as you paddle around.

    5 star ratingThe gal that helped us get ready to go out was very helpful, asked our level of experience and what type of kayak we would prefer. Even gave my beginner friend a rowing demonstration and tips.
