Best Family Day Adventure Such an awesome experience! Highly recommend Big Willie’s to anyone looking for a fun adventure. This is a perfect family adventure! I’m a nurse and needed a day adventure with my kids to unwind and spend quality time with them. This was the perfect plan! I was a bit nervous, as it was their first time kayaking, but Melissa and Dan were incredible! My kids loved it (ages 11 and 15) and were asking to do it again before we even got to the ending point! We did the 6:15 sunset tour, which was the perfect time on a hot August day. We can’t wait to go again!

Paddle boarding on the Cumberland This was SO much fun!! Highly recommend 🙂 Our guides were super nice and friendly. They picked us up by the stadium and bussed us 10 mins upstream. From there we paddled back to where we parked, which took about 2 hours. It was super sunny and hot, but our guides brought a water cooler and plenty of sunblock. 10/10 would recommend going!!

Paddleboarding in Nashville Had a great time paddle boarding last Thursday. Guides were excellent! Friendly, informative and felt very well taken care of. Tour started in a park after a very short shuttle ride. Paddled down river and ended up alongside downtown Nashville across from Broadway. Highly recommend this tour while you are in Nashville this summer! Lots of fun on a warm day!!
