This is so far the best kayak experience we had even though it's winter! We managed to see dolphins (a good dolphin day!), ship graveyard and had a quiet journey into the mangrove. Phil is so knowledgeable about the area and kayaking... highly recommended!

What a lovely experience. Not expensive for what we did. We had some good advice before going on our own. We saw dolphins and the way in between the trees was wonderful ! Thank you :)
