Super easy to deal with. Kayaks comfortable. Reasonable price. 3 hour trip just about right Water was high due to recent rain. Would check first under normal circumstance to make sure water is deep enough.

My wife and I took a great September kayak trip on Darby creek at Trapper Johns canoe livery. We will do it again. We saw a lot of wildlife, turtles, fish, and birds! The small rapids were also great fun!
