We had an awesome time! Dolphins, birds and even a Horseshoe crab! I took our 8y/o son in a tandem kayak and my wife took our 15y/o niece in another.

Kate was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable. It was an incredible experience you won't want to miss! The sunset tour at 6pm is worth the wait as it is between the high and low tides.

What a wonderful time kayaking. It's great for lots of different ages and skill levels; we had not kayaked before but all of us had a great time. Kate, our tour guide, was wonderful and full of life!
