If your going to do something, do it well. We strive to create the best within ourselves and others.


It is experiences that we remember, experiences that bring us together and experiences that shape us but we all need a friend to share those experiences with. We know how to have fun together and we foster a culture of friendliness in what we do.


We genuinely want you to have a great time and we genuinely want you to enjoy our amazingly lakes, learn their story and be impacted by their natural beauty. We value humility.


To remain safe, where possible, you must avoid doing unsafe acts that could otherwise be carried out safely. We foster a culture of safety within all that we do.
