Not advisable for those who want to paddle by themselves. Booked out too far in advance to adequately plan a holiday if you want a guided tour.

Sara, Martha, and Emma were great guides. Very professional, safety was clearly important to them, but also a lot of fun. Only regret is that we didn't kayak for longer! Highly recommend this for people, especially those with not much kayaking experience.

You can see the kayak huts from the ship/port, it's to the right as you get off the ship. We met at a picnic bench near the huts.
