- "Dear Ray, We had a wonderful time last weekend, Thanks again
for your teaching and the adventures that we were able to partake in.It will be
one of our best trips together. Every day was another interesting and eventful
experience. We loved the pictures.You are quite the photographer.If you want to
use them in your web page as happy customers you are welcome to. --Susan and
- "Ray- On behalf of my cohorts, I'd like to thank you for an
excellent trip. We all had a great time and enjoyed not only the scenery and
action, but your company as well. If you can scrounge together some details
about the Baja trip, I'm all ears. Also, I have an unclaimed pair of sandals
that I think are yours, let me know and I'll send them up to you. Thanks again,
- "If you'd like to improve your paddling skills while touring
Penobscot Bay with a terrific guide and skilled teacher, do yourself a favor
and head to Belfast, Maine for a day or two (or more) with Ray Wirth of Walter
Walker. The bay, from Whitehead to Isle au Haut, is stunning. The instruction
-- which had this novice paddling comfortably from one island to another by the
afternoon of day one -- is clear and supportive. The experience is sure to
leave you thinking, 'Oh, so this is why people go sea-kayaking.' If you don't
have your own boat, an added plus is Water Walker's range of top-quality brands
(QCC, Janautica, Point 65N), making this a great place to 'try before you buy'
under real-world paddling conditions." --Tim Lynch
- "Thanks for a very very special day. Martin and I will never forget it. You have a wonderful boat side manner and we hope to paddle with you again soon. " --Marc H.
- "Thank you Ray, for the great photos. Great memories of our trip with
you and Leslie. We feel very fortunate to have experienced such a
wonderful place with you as our guide and and both of you as our fellow seekers of beauty and peace. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Maine and hoping to paddle some with the two of you while there. and maybe share some Thai food too. --Susan & Rich
- "Thanks for the rental and making it so easy for us. As it turned out, the cart was very helpful in getting the kayak back up
to the neighboring cottage. My wife and I had a terrific time exploring the coast between Belfast harbor and Sears Island. Thought I'd share a couple of photos I took of the local inhabitants . .
Congratulations on running such a worthwhile business. You bring joy to a lot of folks." --Larry G.
- ". . . Laura and I wanted to thank you for your time,
guidance and patience. We had a blast. I think we dreamed about kayaking on
Sunday night. Laura is hooked on the Anadyr. I still haven't made up my mind
about a boat, but do know that the boat I have know (Walden Passage) is too
wide for me. I have been out each day since, practicing edging and strokes." --
- "Ray: Thanks again! The children, Sheila and I had a
wonderful time kayaking with you yesterday. The two hours was just enough for
them. We left Belfast and went to Kelmscott Farm and then on to Norton Pond.
Just the right temperature and no one else there. Thanks again for the
wonderful kayaking. See you next year!" Regards, Gary
- "Thanks again for a most enjoyable outing. When I told my
daughter I'll take her next year, she said "You'd better!". I'll be in touch.
