  • We dropped by Thompson Boat Center to rent a kayak for a few hours. The kayak we had was in great condition, the staff was friendly and helpful - a bit unorganized though. There didn't seem to be much a system present for signing waivers. After they scanned your ID you just had to grab a paper from the pad everyone else was trying to use and toss the form back to the person manning the register when you were done. Life jackets were just laying about the dock, trying to find one that fit properly was a bit challenging. All-in-all though, it was pretty quick process to float through and we were out on the river in no time.
  • Rowed and sculled here on and off since I rowed frosh crew at Georgetown in the 70s. Fantastic location, great community resource. Great place to learn.
