Very good on the water experience. Jeff was fun, kind and patient. Keeping the number to 5-6 learners was a good idea so we all got individual instruction and recommendations on better strokes.


Deep knowledge of the subject matter. Engaging and funny.


I wanted more instruction on river kayaking and that's just what we got. My husband and I both enjoyed the class learning about Eddies, strainers, current, etc.


He's kind, patient, caring and very knowlegable. Jeff has years of experience and freely shares it with others.


Calm, friendly and fun style, laid back, not overbearing. He gently guided us in our strokes and had some fun things for us to try. We really enjoyed the class and made some new friends.

Jeff was very knowledgeable about both canoeing and kayaking. He was able to provide examples and demonstrate all the techniques that were discussed.

Great personality. Very positive and always laughing. He made you feel at ease in the water.

Expert with knowledge of subject matter, thorough in explanation and PATIENCE

Very knowledgeable and provides clear direction.

Congratulations on your business success. You are a great instructor, with adapability to meet your students where they are. You come across as non-judgmental and supportive. It was your kind instruction that kept me from quitting.

Appreciated the flexibility in rescheduling due to bad weather.


Very clear instructions. He did a good job at having one on one time with each of the students.


Very good at on the water instruction for beginners.


Good at both describing and demonstrating.


Very organized, very knowledgeable, provided actual gear to learn with, and a great sense of humor provided a balanced experience


Interaction with the kids. Planned games that highlighted the lessons being taught. Started on time and ended on time.


Very experienced, proficient, and safety-conscious. Doesn't push students beyond their capabilities; works within their limitations.


My husband and I want to take the River Course class, which says a lot because he usually doesn't like to take classes. :)
