Awesome family experience

"We LOVED this kayak experience and our guides!! We saw dolphins, a penguin, birds, ate some seaweed & had a beautiful morning. Our family of 5 was very thankful for this experience."

Wonderful Nature Experience

"Our guide, Jake, was super professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about the local natural surroundings, wildlife and history. We were not fortunate enough to meet up with any dolphins but we saw loads of birds and learned a lot about the geology and vegetation and had a beautiful kayak ride. We recommend this trip."

Spectacular Sunrise Safari Experience!

"What an amazing, unforgettable adventure!!! I absolutely loved this kayak tour, at times I was breathless (not from kayaking haha) but the scenery. It was priceless and a really special experience, which I will always remember. I would recommend this to any of my friends and family."

Very fun and professional!

"Our guide Jake was like a walking and talking encyclopedia on marine life and geology. I didn't expect to learn that much about the area and its living organisms. We didn't spot any seals or penguins, but were lucky enough to see a few hector dolphins!"
