2 younger members of our party wanted to go surfing, so we ended up here to rent boards. The next day, they went back, and had a lesson with Jordan, who earned rave reviews from them. The next day, all four of us went paddle boarding and kayaking in a mangrove. This water is calm - an easy way to learn paddle boarding, and an easy kayak if you would rather sit down. You don't have to be particularly fit to enjoy the kayaks, which are very stable, with light paddles. The mangrove, with its salt water trees with their amazing networks of roots, was fascinating, even though we didn't see any crocs. We did see egrets and herons, and a black sand beach where the tour stopped for an ocean swim. There were young children as well as older people in our tour, and all did just fine. We found this tour a bit expensive ($60 each), but interesting nonetheless.
Marq Benoit, the manager, is a laid back, polite and helpful man who seems to do a bit of everything from holding the fort at the shop to real estate sales.
Coconut Harry is no longer the owner of the shop, but it appears to continue to be in great hands. Highly recommended.
