Time well spent and perfect for families with young children. Noel is a lovely guide. Lots of seals and a crazy resident oystercatcher! A must if you’re in the area. You don’t get that wet 😂

As beginners we were looked after well. The motorised kayaks are not working so had to use our own arm power which was fine. Both 14 and 9 yr olds enjoyed the 1.5 hours on the water. Saw a seal on the rocks sun bathing....More
