After looking at several options on the web, we finally reserved 3 spots on the 2 hour harbor tour with Aquaterra and were very pleased with the experience. It was an extremely hot day and we were a little concerned about the 11AM start time, but it turned out to be the best way the spend the hottest part of the day paddling around Frenchman's Bay. We started in their shop right on the water where we got outfitted with everything we needed - right down to the water shoes. Then we went downstairs to the dock for a few minutes of instruction. Since we were 3, we had 2 in one kayak and then shared one with another group. We launched right from the dock and headed out toward Bar Island. Although there are a number of boats docked in the harbor, none were moving as we went out and there was absolutely no issue with it. Our guide Laura was super nice and very patient keeping the whole group together as we paddled around the island. The wildlife was a little sparse - we saw a number of water birds and a seal did pop his head up near us for a few minutes. But the scenery was great and being on the water with a cool breeze was a great way to spend the hottest part of the day. We have been on a couple kayak trips in other places but don't have a lot of experience so we felt the 2 hours was just about right.
