Very easy to book kayak online. The gentleman that checked us in was excellent-he told us where to go snorkeling and see turtles. I would highly recommend kayaking rather than taking the small boat. We were able to explore the sandbar and snorkel on our trip over to Pinel Island. We saw sting rays, turtles, lots of pretty fish, and chased a barracuda that wanted nothing to do with us. We ate a late lunch ($130 for 4-son had lobster) and spent some time relaxing on the beach ($25 for 1 umbrella and 2 lounge chairs) It was by far the best day of our trip

The day we booked ended up being windy and choppy. When we arrived, the staff assessed our skill and comfort level with the conditions, and had us wait for 10 minutes to see if the weather would settle a bit. As the most novice of the group, I was nervous. The weather did improve, and we decided to go for it in double kayaks instead of singles. Ozzy and his employee were both helpful and kind, and they gave us advice to help us make the most of our day with the kayaks. Although the weather was not the best, we were glad that we went on this adventure.

Hi J2267FQalicial, Thank you for sharing your recent experience. As professionals, we try to give the best advice to our customers: we will never force you to get onto the water if we think that it could be dangerous. It depends on your skills, weather, etc... But getting to Pinel with our equipment is always synonym of pleasure ;) We hope to see you again soon, with better weather, this time! Sunny regards, Ozzy
