  • 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

  • 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.
