We visit this area often but hadn't tried a tour. Such an adventure for young and old. Great tour guides and fun for even beginners. Much better than any excursion we've had on other trips, cheaper, more beautiful, and with a great break included.

Fantastic scenery, great guides and equipment. This trip was an excellent way to experience the islands and the wildlife.. Suitable breaks and a nice lunch make the trip accessible for non-kayakers as well as experienced paddlers.

Excellent. Equipped us with everything we needed. Chris was a masterful guide. Very easy going and safety minded. As we were coming in he took us back out due to a report of a whale. We got to see a humpback fairly close. Highly recommended.
