Such a great local business. We got out on the Eno and Flat rivers last night and it was so relaxing...something we need to do more. Banks and his team are kind, knowledgeable and excellent with providing an amazing experience. We've done the family paddle and the paddle under the stars and both were outstanding for different reasons.

I recently took the Intro to Kayak class. Jordan was the instructor. He did a great job of reviewing some kayaking basics about the boat, gear, and so forth. And then instructed us in paddling on dry land. So, it was over an hour till we got in the water, but all the prep was well worth every moment. Once on the water, his patient, encouraging instruction continued. Since there were only two students (me and one other), the class took just under 3 hours. It was a great experience, really whetting my appetite for more kayaking!

Awesome inclusive culture. Great place for participants of all ages and backgrounds offering everything from 55+ classes to camps for young kids. Knowledgeable guides and relaxed atmosphere gave me peace of mind while exploring with them. Best place for guided outdoor recreation in the triangle area by far.

Just used Frog Hollow for kayaking instruction for a group of 12/13 year old girls and moms. Banks was wonderful, patient and flexible. They were able to accommodate a wide range of sizes with safe equipment and excellent instruction. We've already booked another event with them!

Magnificent. If you do any paddling in the triangle, or need lessons, come to Frog Hollow. Just spent an evening paddling in the sunset, waiting for moonrise, and watching fireworks, fish, and birds. Probably one of the best experiences I have had on the water ever.

Took an Intro to Kayak class with instructor Rainbow and couldn’t be happier. I came in a bit unsure of kayaking and left feeling so comfortable and confident in my beginner abilities that I signed up for a night paddle lake tour. Prices are great also. Highly recommend.

My family and I have taken two trips with Frog Hollow this year. The first was a guided kayak tour through the three rivers area. It was absolutely amazing and showed me a paradise in my own backyard that I never knew existed. We all loved it.
That trip motivated us to take a self-guided all day trip. Essentially, we rented the kayaks/canoes for the day in Falls Lake. It was absolutely lovely! We saw a bald eagle, a blue heron, and egrets. We saw an osprey nest (but we didn't see the osprey. Maybe they were on the nest? Not sure.) Then we paddled around for a bit, stopped for lunch, and explored another area after lunch. It was a great way to get back into nature, spend some great quality time, and reset.
The folks at Frog Hollow are amazingly nice and helpful. I can't recommend them more highly.

I have been participating in Frog Hollow events for years. I first got to know them through seeking individual kayaking instruction for myself, and since then have trusted them to lead several school-age groups on kayaking trips and river cleanups. Their instructors have been, without fail, some of the most generous, capable, and knowledgeable people I've paddled with in my life on the water. I credit their teaching and example with laying the foundations for years of fun, safe trips on the water. If you are looking for paddling instruction, or for someone to lead a group of folks on their first (or 50th) paddling trip, I highly recommend Frog Hollow!

We had a fantastic experience with Frog Hollow Outdoors today kayaking on the Eno, Flat and Neuse Rivers. What a joy to be out on the water! And we saw hawks and blue herons; it was so peaceful and lovely in the breeze. Banks and his team are super careful with social distancing, masks at pick-up/drop-off and all of the equipment is sanitized and used by one person a day. We are signed up for their Sunset Paddle, the Paddle Under the Stars (with the Moorehead Planetarium) and the Night Paddles in the coming weeks. What professionals! And the price is right -- $30-$40/person for a few hours on the water. We highly recommend them!

Awesome for group outings! I've been on a few Frog Hollow kayaking and stand up paddleboard excursions, and they've all been wonderful. It's like going on a mini-vacation while staying close to home. Banks does a great job with providing safety rules and skills instructions, and he's always made sure that everyone in the group is comfortable out on the water and that no one strays too far or gets left behind. I've enjoying being introduced to different launch spots on Falls and Jordan Lakes, and the SUP tours were great because we were able to try different board styles and choose SUPs that matched our skill levels. If you need some time on the water but don't know how to get started, I highly recommend contacting Frog Hollow!

The guided Sunset Paddle this week was wonderful! Everything about this outfitter was great: the nice person on the phone who handled reservations, the info available on their website and provided by email, the ease of parking at the boat launch, and the excellent help from guides Anna and Banks. Our group included a novice kayaker and Banks made sure we were all safe and had a great evening on the water. Anna was delightful and knowledgeable. It was a thrill to see a glorious sunset, a bald eagle, and two osprey nests with young ospreys in the nests, and to hear the cricket frogs.
