For a mom and pop operation this was one of the best excursions taken during our cruise. While the weather was not perfect the folks working for this excursion were incredible. The kayak race was a blast and the snorkling outstanding given the weather.

Wasn't sure what to expect---we loved it. Owners are two beauties and staff were amazing. Everything was breathtaking from property, boat trip and island touring. Would highly recommend to anyone.

My first time in a Kayak, my wife's second. We enjoyed paddling among the mangroves with our guide. Easy paddling on flat water. Guides were helpful and safety conscience. After kayaking, came back for some banana bread and rum punches at the house.
