This was a nice paddle. The guide paddled around with us. That's about it. Not much info given or local anything imparted.

Captain Richard was entertaining and informative. I'd highly recommend it for late afternoon so you can see the sunset over the pirate shipwreck.

Certainly a bathing suit, but bring lots of sunscreen and a hat! We did not have a chance to get out of the kayak on our trip, but depending on the direction you go you may have the opportunity.

It's our off season but if we are around and the weather is nice I'm sure we could arrange something. What type of tour are you looking to do? How many people? Best way to communicate if via email. flipperfinders gmail
