What They’re Saying


Over the years, Living Adventure trips have consistently dazzled, surprised, inspired and delighted our customers. “You’ve far exceeded our expectations” is the most common remark on trip evaluations. With the Lake and Islands spiriting the core of a great kayaking experience here, our job is to enhance the natural beauty with knowledgeable guides, excellent food, uncompromised safety and unparalleled fun! The following comments reflect sentiments from a few of our guests:

“… the extra information and stories from the guide made the paddling more than just a guided tour; it made the day a compelling and unforgettable experience.”

” The guides created an atmosphere for all members of our group which was safe and still adventurous”.

“The hassles of organizing this trip around three generations and multiple schedules was quickly forgotten as we paddled around those incredible sea caves. This was the best vacation ever for our family and everyone is eager for another.”

“Absolutely fabulous trip. Exceeded expectations; great food, great scenery. The trip wasn’t too hard but definitely an accomplishment to finish.”

“I cannot get over what a great mood everyone who works here seems to be in. This must be a great place to work. Thank You!”
