A friend and I took out a two person kayak for half the day, and it was superb. All the kayaks and paddles are in good or great shape, and they have life jackets too.

I went there with my friend and boyfriend and we had an amazing time. It cost about 30$ for 20 minutes (they say that but actually its much longer than that! :) ). There is a lot of pretty fish. We had a lot of fun!
