What Our Customers Are Saying…

  • 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.

  • 5 star ratingGreat staff; friendly,helpful and knowledgeable. The kayaks were clean. The equipment such as PFD and oars were fit per each persons size. There were children so the guides were conscience of them and all paddlers. Great 2 hours in perfect weather despite overcast skies.

    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
