I was the only one on the tour. Ally was a fantastic guide. We paddled out to the sea and then throughout the creek. Highly recommend.

We absolutely loved the kayak tour! Selina, our guide, was wonderful. The weather was amazing and tour distance and length were just right. Well worth the price and would totally do it again!
