We rented two canoes from here while staying locally at a cabin that we rented. Because we weren't too far from town, they actually delivered the canoes right to our cabin. Great service.

I think the tours are about $50/person. You go on a canoe, so be prepared to paddle. I had never been on a canoe before, but the tour guide gave me a quick lesson and I was all set for success.
