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.

After much deliberation over which company to go with we decided on MSK as the gourmet platter seemed to offer a range and included lunch. There’s no discount available so don’t waste time looking. The price is the price. The water taxi and walk experience...More

We had a fabulous day on the water with enthusiastic guide Jazz. A beautiful sunny calm day and we were really lucky to see a huge pod of dolphins up close. Thanks - very special.
