Great 2 hour kayak tour with Susan. Eagles, Osprey, and many more. Plus paddle tips. The kayaks are great, as are the views. This is a great company for whatever your interest.

What a great afternoon tour with Susan! It was informative and engaging for everyone in our family (ages 9-49!) Susan's knowledge is impressive, compassion is inspiring and enthusiasm is contagious! The guided tour was well worth the fee! We will be back!
