Josh was great and it was so refreshing to hang out with someone who takes pride in his community and family. Be sure to book your trip at the beginning of your stay in the Wallowa’s so you can get the run down from Josh on all the best things to do, trails to hike, and local “hot spots”. Ok. No real hot spots, but truly an amazing place to spend a peaceful time with great people and beautiful scenery. The night time kayak adventure is a complete “next level” in connecting with nature.

We loved the kayaking to be sure, unique and fun experience with the glass bottom boats! What really stood out though was the over top customer forward demeanor of Josh and Hannah, it was apparent that their main goal was for us to have fun! Also, a great resource for recommendations on other outings and things to do! Our highest recommendation! Thank you, Josh and Hannah!

This was the most amazing experience ever. I am so grateful to Joshua and his entire family for going the extra mile for us. I highly recommend no passing up the opportunity to take this tour and have this experience. Thanks again so much for everything you did for us we appreciate it so much!

We loved our whole experience! They called me the day before to warn us of the bad weather and rescheduled us for the next day, which turned out beautiful. They explained the hazards of the weather when we went and made sure we were comfortable with slightly rougher waters in the beginning. They offered their shoulder to help us get into the kayak and made sure we were sitting comfortably before taking off. We even got onto the water early for a little extra rental time! Very friendly people. They offered hiking and dining suggestions to us afterward for the rest of our trip! I would recommend to anyone and would love to come back next season!

This was really fun. I wasn’t sure what to expect but the water was calm, the kayaks were really stable, and the guides were great. The lake is so clear and with the lights on the boats, you could see a lot of the lake bottom and fish. The stars were beautiful. I can’t imagine what it would be like with less haze in the air.

We had a great time on the Nighttime Adventure Tour! Our guide was local and knew the lake well. We loved the stability of the kayaks and the see-through feature. We got to see the bottom of the lake several times and our guide led us to areas to see 2-3lb trout swimming under our kayaks! By the end it was very dark, which was amazing for seeing the stars! We highly recommend this company and tour! Thank you JO Paddle for a memorable experience!
