Jake, our guide, did an excellent job showing us the beautiful sites and wildlife. He was knowledgeable of the area and engaged us in great conversation. He was full of tips to make kayaking easier. Relaxing trip. Pretty sunset.

We rented a two person kayak to paddle around the sound. It was beautiful day and the kayak was well maintained. Everyone during the process was super nice and we had a blast. I would rent from here again, no problem.
