We really had a lot of fun – both at the class and afterward! You’re an excellent instructor and a great guy! We’ll definitely have to join you and the group for a kayaking adventure in the near future."
-Laura, St. Petersburg FL


"What a great class! Mike is very patient and kind with the paddlers. I made some new friends and can't wait to go on one of the paddling adventures."

    Also we need have everyone who's not paid up to take care of that by Thursday, Feb 6th 6pm that way we'll know who's actually in the class and we won't have any no shows that keep the members on the waiting list from not participating.

    So if one is on a waiting list then that means the class is filled so make other plans?

    Hey Del, Johnathon, and Lesek, we need to know if you will require a kayak rental for this class ASAP. I've got other rentals going this day and need to figure out who will require a kayak. Thanks. Carolina Mike (class instructor)
