We took the 8am kayak tour with Ben as our guide. We went up shem creek to look at the live oak trees and spot some of the birds like blue herons, brown pelicans and some others. Since our kids were not paddling, they were given a scavenger hunt with pictures of birds, trees and animals to look for. It... More

They were friendly. They gave good instructions. They even gave advice regarding routes to paddle with the tide and the best strategy to see dolphins. And we did see dolphins - 4 adults, one with a baby. Awesome!

My two cousins and I took a 6 pm sunset kayaking tour in Shem Creek. It was just us and the guide, which was really cool because he let us decide what we wanted to do.

We had the boards for 3 hours and this was the right amount of time. There were dolphins everywhere! On our return, a family (a mom,... More

However, the pace was perfect and the guide never put pressure on anyone to speed up. It was awesome being able to kayak along side dolphins... More
