There is something magical about being on the water at sunset, when the sky changes to a multitude of hues, and the full moon appears on the horizon, at fist so big it looks as if you can touch it. Our Guides will give you basic instruction of kayaking, and then we will leisurely paddle the calm, protected waters of the Slocum River. Along the way we’ll stop to “raft up” to share snacks and stories. Very relaxing!
