3 of us went for the Urban Tour; Easter Sunday morning at 10am. The Kayaks were easy to manage and Diane was pleasantly informative. Plenty of birdlife and iguanas. A very relaxing way to spend 1.5 hours.

My sister and I went kayaking and decided to go around the whole island! It's beautiful and took about 3 hours to do. We didn't see a ton of wildlife but it was still very pretty and there wasn't much of a current to fight....More
