It was a wonderful day with Steve, he is a very down to earth and knowledgeable guide. The water was calm given it is protected from the open ocean. It was my first time kayaking in the sea and I had no problems, the distances aren't too far. I highly recommend it.

As started during phone conversation, the booking did not go into our res system due to problems, as you said also. You would have been refunded the cost of a Uber but you said no. You also got told that the guide will wait for you to come and join the trip so your day was not wasted. We tried to fix issue but you were too angry and unset already.
