This experience was amazing!!! We couldn’t believe how many horses we saw and how close we were able to get. I’m going to have to visit again and book this with my husband and daughter. There were some ducks and a good number of cranes on the river as well. This was a short getaway trip for 3 moms of young children, and this experience provided us with a wonderful adventure that also didn’t break the bank or our bodies. We would all have chosen this again and again.

Chet was an awesome guide and knew the Salt river very well and awesome places to stop... the wild horses were an awesome sight to see all along the river. I definitely recommend Chet for your kayak adventure. Will definitely go again next time I'm back here again from KC.

We had a BLAST! This was our first time kayaking and Chet spoke with us on the phone to answer any questions we had. We saw horses almost immediately and were able to get some wonderful pictures. Chet is incredibly knowledgeable, funny and was helpful every step of the way. This is an incredibly fun experience, we saw beautiful horses, sights and I highly recommend enjoying some time on the river with Chet.

Chet was awesome! He was super friendly and made us feel very at ease right from the beginning. It was both of my boyfriend and I’s first time kayaking so getting started was a little rocky, but Chet was extremely patient and talked us through every step of the way. 100% recommend! Floating down the river and seeing the horses interact in their natural surroundings was truly a once in a lifetime experience.
