Amazing day! Great communication regarding pick up and what to bring. Kayaks were well cared for. Our guide, Michelle, was knowledgeable, personal and helpful. The Emerald Cave;albeit, not much more than a grotto, was still beautiful.

Had a great day on the river. Zack arrived right on time, in a comfortable van ready to show us and the others a fun day. Water was absolutely stunning, yes, remember the sunscreen and bug spray. I wore a sun proof rash guard and was happier for it. The tour provides a few snacks, water, nice equipment and fun narrative. I would absolutely suggest that you book with River dogz.
