We thought we would try out the salt marshes as we had never done anything like that before. It was not the cheapest day out - we just did the park, not the boat. Would recommend you check the times of the spectacle before coming...More

We loved the salt lakes. Well worth a trip up them in a canoe. We had a really good time. We went as a family and laughed our way along the lakes. Safety vest is provided. Good value. Great fun and lots of fun

We had fun canoeing but be warned you will get wet and the weeds are quite thick along the banks. At €12 euros for a two man canoe for an hour it was very reasonably priced
