You can book a week, a day, a half-day. The offering is varied, the staff friendly and helpful, the equipment on hand- all they need is your kid! My daughter (14) had a great time with lots of other kids her age. Thanks!

Went kayaking. Staff were very helpful (even with info on other local attractions), and the place is well-supplied... wet-suits, helmets, life vests etc. Beautiful place. Pay attention to weather, though. Winds were blowing at 30+ mph when I was there, which made paddling very challening
