Our kayak trip with Celeste through Blazin Paddles was an extraordinary adventure! She had a wealth of experience and professional expertise that was inspiring! Her magnetic personality was delightful and made the trip a treasured memory! The attending guide, Krystalyn, was most helpful and intuitive. She was a wonderful conversationalist! Perfect day in the Black Canyon on The Colorado River!

Celeste was awesome! It was pretty crazy for her to drive us, share her knowledge of the city, train us for the activity, do it with us, and drive us back. She was the total package for sure! Thx for the great memories..
