My main wish was to go snorkeling, and after Thomas led... More

Had a great time with Kim and Thomas! The kayaks were in great condition and had rudders at the back to make them easier to steer and more stable (which for beginners like us was great!). We were provided with a dry bag so I could take my camera in the kayak and Thomas also took some photos of us... More

Even though the weather was a little overcast & raining, it did not detract from the great experience that we had. Not being very confident I went in the double kayak with my husband & my 2 sisters-in-law tried the double too. The 2 guides, Bernard & Thomas, were very attentive as we were a little unsure, but they were... More
