We spent a nice morning on the river with our 2y.o.. Ruth was kind to provide consultation on how to do it with the baby. She even provided a quick tutorial and guided us into the creek. Overall highly recommended.

We just finished a lovely moonlight tour with Ruth on a stunning, bright moonlit night. Ruth's knowledge of the rivers history and wildlife was fascinating. The moonlight tour provides a really unique experience which any adventure or nature lover will enjoy. Highly recommend!
