Anton our guide was superb, excellent sense of humour, very knowledgeable about local fauna and flora. Very thorough safety briefings. Kayaking was not too difficult and plenty of opportunities to see seals. Would definitely recommend. Gemma anc David, Dubai.

Fantastic day out. Despite the rain, Jazz our tour guide made our trip a memorable and personal experience. The wildlife was amazing, with the highlight being playful baby seals swimming around our boats. Would highly recommend this company and would definitely go with them again.

We had a perfect day for kayaking, we saw on Tonga Island a lot of fur seals and the most extraordinary was the sailing experience! The wind picked up and we used for 3 kayaks the sail to navigate together! It was awesome!
