This was exhilarating! We had a fantastic kayaking adventure. We were initially hesitant since she doesn't know how to swim (though I can swim like a guppy).

We recently did the sunset sea kayak tour. Travis was our guide and did a wonderful job. He was quick to remember our names and was very attentive. He supplied everything you need and made the trip memorable.

We went on a wonderful sea kayaking trip this week! We were led by Travis who was very enthusiastic & informative. We were able to view deer, eagles, & jellyfish up close! I highly recommend this trip to see the harbor & islands from a different perspective!

This kayaking trip turned into one of the highlights of our vacation. We took the 2 hr sunset tour with Mark as our guide. He was very helpful and made the trip a lot of fun while providing some interesting local facts at the same time. We were all pleasantly surprised to come across a seal pup on bar island... More
