Not only were we unable to go into the cave, but we were "assisted" into tipping over upon entry and "assisted" into tipping over upon our return. We own a kayak and use it in the Gulf of Mexico almost daily. We have also kayaked at La Jolla Cove previously without incident. Our kayak had a back seat that was... More

We booked the Kayak and Snorkelling tour package, however on arrival were told that the snorkelling portion had been cancelled due to sea conditions and would be refunded. No big problem, although a courtesy text or call would have been appreciated. The person who 'checked' us in was friendly enough, although didn't really outline how the tour would work. I... More

Had high hopes for this pricey bike tour but tour ended up being a lightly guided tour by a guy who didn't know much about the island. The tour consisted of three stops (ferry pier, hotel del and monument) but we didn't get the useful information that you would have expected. Also, the bike seats were very uncomfortable, the breaks... More

We have took many kayak trips before in other places and this is by far the most boring kayak trip we have done to date. For beginners or first timers, this maybe OK. But for us, this was a total waste of our time and money. While they name the tours as the caves tour, we barely got close to... More

We booked a snorkel and kayak tour the same day of the tour. After 5-10 paddling on water we had our first 'stop' to snorkel. Well none of us did see any fish. Water was dark and cloudy. Second 'stop' was suppose to be the caves, however, we were told we couldn't go in because of the tides. I understand... More

We took the Kayak tour of Coronado (the bay tour) on a beautiful sunny day with 2 adults and 3 teenagers. We enjoyed the ride through the bay and found the kayaking instruction was helpful and everyone was outfitted with proper equipment and was helped out into the bay. Our tour guide was a nice kid but did not provide... More
