We had a great tour with Neil, our guide. We had a small group of 4 people. Neil was very informative on the local flora and fauna. Neil did a great job orienting the group with their equipment and safety procedures.

Well thought-out tour. Our guides - Kate & Sam - were very knowledgeable and helped make for a memorable trip. Bonus was the great in-house coffee shop with tasty pastries that topped off the day

Great service! We joined their day tours on a corporate retreat, and truly enjoyed ourselves. Learned a few things about the island history, and picked up a dad joke along the way, what else could you ask for?

Glad you enjoyed our coffee; we're very happy to offer Karma Coffee at TSK. Sorry that we weren't able to provide a flat white; we're still training up some of our staff and will make sure we go over some of the less-requested items.

I haven’t tried myself, but our guide reported he kayaks most days throughout the winter. Call company about dressing appropriately - they supply a lot of gear.
