This was a day trip that took us about 3 hours. We went from the 9 mile bridge to the 6 mile bridge. We had 7 people in our group with 3 of us being beginners. It was very fun but very challenging for us new ones. I would not recommend for young children at all. Lots of obstacles and shallow water with tight turns. We did tip a few times but with some strong guys to help get out it can be alot of fun. I would do it again but not for everyone. We heard the stretch from 6 mile down river to next bridge is alot smoother.
