Kelsey and Heather took us on an amazing cave tour. We challenged ourselves under their guidance and had some pretty extreme experiences while feeling safe the whole time. We were sore the next day!

Far more physical than I imagined but definitely a lot of fun. We saw some wild life, lots of beautiful beaches not able to be seen unless you are in a boat.

Went with 3 girlfriends on this trip for the cave kayaking tour. It was a blast! The tour guides were fun and made sure we were safe. From registration to the end of the day was seemless. We are going back.

Wife and I did the Sea Cave Tour in a Tandium kayak. Guides were great. They instructed and tested guests in the skills needed before entering the caves. They also brought cameras and took photos. The gear is in good condition and was fitted properly. Wish we'd brought the kids.

This was one of the greatest adventures for kayakers. The staff was friendly and our tour guide made the adventure fun and educational. This is a "must do" if you are going to be in the area
