Had an amazing time, Keith was our guide and he was extremely friendly and courteous. Showed us a lot, spotted a whale with him which was neat, and he was really knowledgeable with all of our questions. Would definitely recommend this.

Kayaking is the one water activity you can participate without needing to know how to swim. You will have a life vest and an expert guide with you.
