Both Don and Mark are great knowledgeable guys!! BVO is a great place to launch your kayak or rent one. The paddle down river ‘n back is great! Couple of left and rights you can take before getting to the dam make it longer if you’d like…. Jeremy

I wanted to thank you for your service and for the amazing time we had with our bikes.The scenic route is so beautiful, it was the highlight of our trip! Lea

I love your guided kayaking trips! As a Cumberland resident I have come to love and appreciate all that the Blackstone River and Blackstone Valley has to offer. We are truly blessed to have this great natural resource as our new playground! I have a blast going out with both of you on kayaking trips and find myself daydreaming at work, thinking about the next time I can kayak on our beautiful river! The Providence tour is also a blast and a must for everyone! I love how you make every customer feel welcome and I truly feel like your business brings people together. It is a place where new friends are made. Melissa

I went on the March Rome Point trip. It was fabulous. Don is very knowledgeable about the area’s history and provided great tidbits throughout the walk. He was very professional and fun! The group ranged in age and abilities ie: I was the only Grandma. Don made the outing interesting for all of us. We saw 20 plus seals from the shore. The shore was covered in beautiful and whole shells of all colors and shapes. What a treat in March! Thanks, I’ll be looking for more outings under 5 miles. Joni

Thanks for great day on that Warner trail. Had never hiked before, so it was a treat for me being a first timer, and to spend the day with such a good group. Mark
