“The logistics flowed smoothly.  I am especially grateful to you for catering to our schedules.  I especially liked the challenges you put us up to on the river.  I think that improved my paddling a lot.

The quality of the information was wonderful.  I learned a ton of good technical vocabulary and the quantity was huge…Safety was always first, no matter what!  That made me feel very comfortable knowing how safe your instructors were being.”
