Geneen Massey and Aaron Dorfman have lived in the D.C. area for more than a decade. Since Bladensburg Waterfront Park is just a 10 minute drive away--and a peaceful, relaxing hour or so kayak to the National Arboretum from there-- it's a favorite go-to for fun, exercise and time with friends.

As an educator, Geneen has worked with students from age 9-adult. She received her M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (2011) and has endorsements in Journalism and Reading (Wilson Dyslexia Practitioner).

This trip was a real surprise. I had done the bike trail along the river twenty-some years ago and had no idea the river had improved so nicely. It was especially fun seeing all of the high school and college crew teams out rowing on Saturday morning.

This was an unexpectedly lovely trip. Geneen and Aaron were very nice and very welcoming. We started at Bladensburg Waterfront Park and kayaked to the national Arboretum. We then hiked a bit in the Arboretum, had lunch, and went to several of the exhibits before hiking back to the kayaks for the paddle back. We saw lots of wildlife and thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of the Anacostia. I highly recommend this!

This was a great way to spend a day - kayaking on the river was incredibly peaceful, and an entirely unique way to approach the Arboretum. A definite must-do if you get the chance!

I would recommend this experience in a hot minute for anyone spending some time in D.C.. It is also something fun and easy to do with kids @ 10 or oider.

What an amazing trip for locals or visitors I would like this kayak and Arboretum trip is a one of a kind experience the hosts are thoughtful and it’s not rushed at all beautiful scenery and just a well paced day. We look forward to coming back with friends and family for this guided experience and got to know an area of the Arboretum that we had not visited before.
