     I had the best day I've had in a long time -- and I'm retired...My days are not horrible. I learned some of what John tried to teach me. I met interesting people. I felt safe, yet challenged. I felt supported, despite not having a clue. It was just a very nice day! Thank you to John and his assistants! I look forward to seeing you again! Cindy Barber from Athens, GA

    Jason on Jul 30, 2016.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     Fantastic intro class -- well worth the money! I really enjoyed being on the water and around such smart and fun people. John Miller, Clint Miller and Karen Johnson were fantastic instructors, each in his/her own way, which is a really nice thing. Photos of the day, taken and posted by John and Clint, were a delightful bonus. And a very detailed follow-up email from John provided guidance on getting started (kayak purchase/rental, gear, rivers, groups, etc.). Overall: WOW!!

    shelley c. on May 18, 2015.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     John is a great instructor no matter whether it's your first time in a kayak or if you have previously taken a beginner's class. He completed a T-rescue for a first timer while successfully instructing the "swimmer" through the "cowboy scramble" for kayak re-rentry without swimming to the river bank. It's not easy. John also brought two safety kayakers with him even though we students numbered only five. I was very impressed!! Very safe. Learned a lot! 

    chris d. on May 18, 2015.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     Very impressed with the knowledge and patience demonstrated by the instructors. This was a very enjoyable trip, but I learned a lot while having fun. 

    Yvonne B. on Nov 9, 2014.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     This beginning class is essential for anyone who is serious about kayaking safety and proper technique. Very informative and knowledgeable instruction and a great day as well. 

    Ann H on Oct 14, 2014.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     Wonderful, The whole leader crew was knowledgeable, safe, and FUN. 

    Kristin on Oct 13, 2014.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     Starts with basic critical information and the class built upon that as we moved downstream. Although what we did might not be a big deal for experienced kayakers, for someone who is just learning like myself it was perfect. The instructor as well as his assistants were very friendly, answered all questions in an inviting way and coached us all along the way. They were not afraid to speak up if they observed us doing something that needed improvement, but encouraged us to succeed. Having worked in the healthcare industry for many years I have received much training. This team has a great approach. 

    Mike T. on Oct 12, 2014.

    Tom C. on Sep 8, 2014.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     John is an amazing instructor. His stories are highly entertaining and very educational. It's all about safety with him and he teaches so many valuable things that you absolutely have to know in order to safely be on the water. I'll most.likely take his class for a third or even fourth time because they are so excellent!

    David R. on Jun 30, 2014.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     A great class, highly recommended. John, Clint and Pat were attentive and very helpful answering questions and covering the basic skills. I feel much more confident about being on the river and yet wary, in a good way, of the dangers and pitfalls in moving water. John is an excellent instructor and combines well theory and practice. I learned again that old saying "it's not what you don't know that makes you stupid it's what you know that ain't so." Thanks John for the fun, learning experience. 

    Bruce on Jun 26, 2014.

     It was a great class! I learned a lot more than expected and had a great time doing it. John has that innate quality where he can encourage you to challenge yourself without being pushy, not to mention more patience than I would ever have. We had beautiful weather and shared the class with some really nice people. Thank you!

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     John and all were so very helpful! I felt safe on the river too! People were wonderful and so very supportive! I needed extra help because while I am right handed, I discovered I was a left handed paddler--this took some extra attention and assistance because I did not know this going into the class! I appreciated all of the patience! 

    Cyndie on Sep 2, 2012.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     Excellent -John and Chris are a terrific teaching team. It was a great blend of personal attention and group interaction, without being pushed too hard or measured against anyone younger or in better shape. We were given the information we needed to be safe and paddle successfully, and then encouraged to play! I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to see if kayaking is as much fun as it looks (it is!)

     Every beginner needs is class Takes your kayaking more enjoyable and safer. 

    call me R J on Jul 16, 2012.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     Really appreciate that the 4-hour lake class is offered. I was a newbie to kayaks when I took the July basic class for beginners on the lake at Ft Yargo. No reason to be intimidated, you're not expected to try anything you're not comfortable with. Everyone in the group laughed with each other as we got in (and then out) of our kayaks for the first time. Think still water paddling in lakes is my preference for now. John gave us the skills to do that and made the activity fun for kids and adults. He's very accomodating and will let you try whatever you want to try including falling out of your boat if you want to learn to get back in out in the middle of the lake. John kept saying "Oh, I haven't taught you the splash stroke" - SPLASH! He never did teach us that stroke - probably in self defense since there were 11 of us and one of him! 

    Diana on Jul 9, 2012.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     I learned a lot and had a great time! Definitely recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn to kayak. I was having so much fun I didn't even realize what a workout I was getting! I'm hooked! :) 

    Kristin H. on Jul 9, 2012.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

    Kathryn on Jul 8, 2012.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     John, Mike and the folks who supported this class did a great job. Considering the objective was to keep 10 Kayaking novices safe, entertained, organized, happy and satisfied with the lesson all the while moving down a major river system...they pulled it off without a hitch. I had fun and learned a lot. If you want a quality first-kayak experience John has what it takes and you should consider joining him.

     This is a great way to get into kayaking. I'm learning a lot even though I had some experience. If you're thinking of getting a kayak for the first time - take this class before you buy one. It will help you to know what to look for, and give you the opportunity to try several boats.

     This is the best way to get a feel for it The number of people who sign up for more and even go out and purchase their own kayak after this one class is very high and speaks all for itself!

     Invaluable for anyone thinking about taking up the sport! It's a great way to find out about trips and classes and to meet other people who want to kayak.

     John is a great instructor. He's very patient with beginning kayakers. You will learn a lot and have a lot of fun. His class is a great way to experience the beauty of the Chattahoochee River. In fact, I'd recommend his kayak class as a great way to experience two true gems of Atlanta - the Chattahoochee River and John Miller. You're likely to see wildlife such as turtles, geese, ducks and blue herons along your trek. John is all about safety, fun, preparation, and enjoying the river. He's a certified instructor with the American Canoe Assoc. And he'll regale you will some great stories about paddling, the river, and its people. It's hard to not catch some of John's passion for kayaking and the great outdoors.

     It's a good idea to get some basic skills before you take off on your own....safety on the water first folks.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     Excellent way to learn to paddle a canoe or kayak and learn about lake ecology and local flora with plenty of time to see points of interest in a relaxed setting. Equipment rental available for small fee for those that don't have their own boat

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     It's fun, informative, and a great way to see parts of the Chattahoochee that most people never see. Relaxed atmosphere and enjoyable people who become new friends. A number of people go out with John even after they complete the class to improve their skills or just have a good group to be with. My friend, Theresa, and I will definitely go again!

     This group offers such a variety of river trips with these wonderful instructors. There are trips for all ages and all skill levels. We plan to do more trips as a family and with friends. To the organizers & instructors: Keep up the great work of organizing & executing these trips! You are helping more & more folks to develop a love of paddling & enjoy the great outdoors. And that is a wonderful gift on so many levels.

     John Miller does an excellent job of organizing his groups. That is why I would always go with something he was involved with getting together.

  • Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

     Anyone who is interested in learning to Kayak and wants an alternative to learning by trial & error should consider this. I learned a lot more than if I had just rented a boat and headed off alone.
