  • Rented 2 kayaks for Trip 1. Staff was fantastic and rentals were in great shape! The trip was supposed to be 2 hours however this river is so slow moving and the wind was blowing up river so it was MUCH more paddling required than I thought. It ended up taking us 3 hours. I thought it would be mostly steering with the paddles with the river moving us down. Not the case. If we weren't actively paddling propelling ourselves down river we were almost stationary with the wind. My wrists and arms are quite sore. We had a great time-but the last half hour was rough for me since I'm so out of shape.
  • Awesome place to take the kids for an easy kayaking experience!! Great people and amazing customer service!! Been going here for years ever since we found this little gem!!
  • I have been renting boats from Deb when taking out groups bigger than my fleet can support. Good equipment and Deb has been always helpful. I don't know what led to the negative comments but some people are difficult to please. And unfortunately they are also the people who complete these reviews.
  • Great Kayaking Trips! My wife and I have done two kayaking trips through Fever River Outfitter. We did the upper Fever River and Lower Fever River. I found both very enjoyable and easy, any beginner should be able to handle it. I think I enjoyed the upper part of the river more but both were excellent. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The shop is also nice my wife and I bought some clothing there. If you book a trip make sure you get there early like they suggest because they do not wait long for people running late as a courtesy to the rest of the group that showed up on time.
  • My sisters and I are in our 60-70's and try and do something different when we get together monthly. We were very excited to do the scooter to the vineyard trip. When we arrived the girl at the desk was snippy and told us the owner would be going out with us since she thought we wouldn't keep our helmets on. Let me also say that a copy of the waiver/agreement you sign there should be given to each and every customer coming in-but it wasn't. You are given then a quick lesson from the owner going around the parking lot 3 times. When she felt all was ok, she told us to go on without her and to keep checking the map - What! How you read a map after newly getting comfortable with a scooter is far fetched to say the least. She also did not want to go with us after we told her we had no map since we were told she was to go with us. That didn't sit well. The trip to the winery was lovely - it was a very hot day but well worth the drive. When we arrived, she hopped in a van and was just about to drive away when we quickly caught her to open the seat to get our gear out - she simply handed us the key. Upon retrieving us, she was a completely different person in her attitude-and I would expect it would be for the possibility of getting a tip. All in all, we loved the scooter ride, the vineyard was all right - but the demeanor of the owner and her staff left us not wanting to ever use their business again for anything.
