Northbrook Canoe reviews
This was a great way to spend a hot day on the water. price was a little steep and they didn't honor the Tuesday special (which has now been taken off their website). We did get to use the $5 off... more »
Not impressed with the check in procedure here. We made a 1:00 rez and I arrived 15 minutes early. It was very disorganized and we sat around waiting almost 45 minutes. It was extremely hot and I had.... more »
Logistics and equipment: Our departure was 1 hour after what was originally booked. There were at least 200 people waiting for buses and other transportation. People doing tubing would board school..... more »
This place is the best. The help is so friendly and helpful. The creek itself is so nice just to float down or paddle if you want. Peaceful and exciting at the same time.
We have lived less than 10 minutes away from this place for 10 years and just decided to go recently with our kids, ages 6 and 3. THEY LOVED IT! They have been asking to go back and we definitely will. The service was good. It was really busy but they did a good job of keeping things moving. A great time for both kids and adults.
We've been to this place 2 times with our children and a group of friends. We've had a great time, with lots of memories, each time we've been there. We will definitely go back.
Northbrook is great! Their kayaks are decently outfitted. My first time kayaker guest was very comfortable in her boat. The staff is wonderful. I brought my own kayak and they let me drive my car into 'their' area to load it back on my car instead of having to drag it back to the parking lot. If you want to go kayaking, canoeing, or even tubing, Northbrook is the outfitting company to go with! You can't go wrong. And they run thru October. I will always take a weekday off to do an October run. Peaceful, beautiful fall colors, and you will likely have the river to yourself. Highly recommended.
‘Dog must be in a canoe so they have somewhere to go’ My dog is trained it wouldn’t ‘go’ on the trip and never in a canoe. What about the children and adults releaving themselves up and down the bank. Please tell me how this works. We had a pleasant time here before and learned dogs are welcomed, built a special tube for her (the Dog) And now can’t use it with this company? The older gentleman in the office that seems to run things is very robotic and on the cuff of being rude to staff and patrons. I will remove this once the issue of the dogs “going’ is more properly explained.
