Our guide, Justin, was a wealth of information about the area and the wildlife we saw. He kept us laughing and entertained the whole time. He was also able to get us in and out of our kayaks quickly and safely.

Kayaking is the one water activity you can participate without needing to know how to swim. You will have a life vest and an expert guide with you.
