What can we say ! Leigh was fantastic from start to finish, we had an amazing time, he really made us feel welcome and at ease throughout the day.

It was an amazing canoe day with Leigh. Not only did he provide insightful commentary about the surroundings but he also encouraged us to share our own stories throughout the session. I recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a canoe adventure that combines good conversation and fun.

We had a tremendous time, one of the most memorable experiences I've had. Leigh goes above and beyond all expectations. I now like water activities because of this experience. I can’t recommend this company, and Leigh in particular, enough.
