"I thought the trip was terrific. I think you did an excellent job putting everyone at ease and ensuring that everyone had a good time. I definitely learned quite a bit about setting the footrests, getting in and out of the boat, better paddling and planning an excursion. I will be looking into additional trips (maybe lessons!) in the future and will not hesitate to recommend Potomac Paddlesports!"
