From start to finish, our experience was exceptional. The Guides were attentive and friendly, as were the front desk staff. If you want a safe and memorable way to see the islands up close, look no further. This is just the start of more kayaking...More

Friendly and professional staff. Wasn't sure if I was going to like it: I loved it! No better way to see some of the amazing cottages than right on the water. Would recommend it to anyone and you DON'T need to have kayaked before...Brilliant....Worth it!
