We did the Haunted canoe ride. It is okay if you are looking for something to do, but it was a little too expensive. I pictured something completely different for the canoe ride. It was low tide so th...ey were running about 45 minutes behind schedule, which is not their fault. However, it wasn't 40-45 minutes as they stated for the experience. It was more like 30 minutes. I don't know if it was because they were behind schedule. Most likely will not do it again. See More

We had a blast. By far the best kayak experience yet. Definitely want to go back. We only got half way, it was too hot. Definitely recommend this spot to anyone. Can't wait to go again ����

It was our first kayak experience. We were with 2 kids 5 and 8 y.o. People are very friendly and helpful. Gave us excellent advise without trying to pull more money than necessary. The boat and childr...en's vests were very good and looked new and clean. Grown ups vests looked a bit shaby but fully functional. The river is a great experience with many birds and fishes so close to see. Great place for people without experience like we r: the big part are very shallow waters and no strong current. Bathrooms are clean and small shop provides with some nesesseties like bugs repellent. Wish they would add a caffe shop. But otherwise Loved it and planning to come back again. See More

This is an amazing group of people to help have an experience to remember! They are educated, composed, and most importantly FUN, that's why we are here and what life's all about!

I ordered tickets for the movie on the river for wrong day. I can't believe how quickly they responded to my message and how promptly i was refunded. I ordered tickets for the correct night, and am so... excited to go. EXCELLENT customer service, I'm very impressed by how they responded to the social media comments on FB. People were disappointed the movie had sold out, and they added more dates to accommodate those of us who wanted to go. See More

We had a great time on the full moon paddle excursion. The staff was very helpful especially on the way back because it was very dark. The night was beautiful and our first experience with Carmans was amazing. We plan on doing more kayak adventures. See More
