We did a kayak tour through Island time kayaking. We kayaked to the Matevulu Bluehole. This was just majestic! However we had a lot of issues before we got to start kayaking. The pickup was meant to be for 8.30am, however we did not leave the port till approximately 10.30 (some of this was due to island politics). Our group... More

Hello Stacey, I am sorry that the problem at the wharf on August 14th caused you inconvenience, but it was out of our control and should no way reflect our being late as we were there on time, (to pick up another group) but were delayed by the uniforms redirecting the traffic and checking business credentials.

We had an excellent time kayaking through the salt water into the fresh water of the iconic blue hole. This tour took about 3 hours there and back including swimming at the blue whole.
