Absolutely calm and peaceful and we enjoyed kayaking in the beaver river. Free spirit tours makes it so enjoyable. They will shuttle you and kayak upstream and then you just kayak back to your car. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. Equipment were in great condition. Changes were also reasonable too. Recommend them with Five stars.
Will and Joel provided timely information, excellent customer service and willingness to make this a great day out on the river!

My husband, brother and I did the Nottawasaga River kayak tour last week and loved it! It was a beautiful paddle filled with fish, turtles, blue herons, cormorants, and other aquatic birds. Jenny and Tim were also incredibly kind. Their attentiveness, professionalism and advice made the whole experience smooth, well-organized and highly enjoyable. We will be making Free Sprit Tours a regular part of our summer trip up to the Blue Mountains and Wasaga Beach. Free Spirit Tours is the perfect option for anyone looking for a memorable outdoor adventure!
