  • We had such a lovely time. Elijah was our outfitter and he gave us a few tips, sent us on our way and was there at the pull out. We were able to see a river otter, several shore birds (blue heron) and...  read more »
  • Umiak provides convenient shuttle service to the Waterbury reservoir for an afternoon of kayaking or canoeing. They make it very simple and shuttle a kayak from their store to the launch point for you...  read more »
  • Set up a brewery tour for myself and 2 friends through Umiak. Dealt with Brett when setting up the tour, he kept in contact until everything was set up and ready to go. Great communication throughout ...  read more »
  • Rented a kayak from these guys last summer. Figured I'd pass some love. They were enjoyable and helpful in getting me on the water!
  • TLDR: little scummy I had booked my sledding several weeks in advanced. The night before the outing, not 15 hours before the scheduled sledding I received the confirmation Email. I arrived an hour before the appointment and am told all sledding had been cancled for the day, when I asked why I hear verbatim- "with so few riders it wouldn't have been worth our time." I appreciate that small businesses have to make decisions like this, I don't believe it is fair or common practice to not bother calling the clients who you cancel on, or sending a confirmation Email the night before.
  • Joe at Umiak helped us with the purchase of a SUP and a Kayak. He and all the staff were very patient and helpful. They have a demo pond out back where you can "try before you buy"... a real plus! We went back two weeks later to get kayaks for our kids. Amazingly, Joe managed to get all four watercraft onto the roof of our subcompact Honda Fit. The charge for the roof rack installation was one six pack of good Vermont beer. Good stuff! We also took a SUP lesson with "Max" at the Waterbury Reservoir. He was great... very knowledgeable and ready to share information.
  • We took the Lamoille River Kayak trip from Jeffersonville, VT to the Boyden Winery. Our guide was outstanding! They tell you its a 30 minute drive to Jeffersonville, Plan extra time if its a weekend due to traffic through the Noch.
  • The guides on our snowmobile tour were very polite. They would stop once in a while and ask my wife if she would like to operate the machine, which is a courteous thing to do when you are paired. Being the last tour of the night we didn't get the hot cider, though.
