I had no further practice in kayaking, but the trip was really enjoyable. After we got used to the kayaks, we started our tour through the archipelago with a magnificent view of all the islands. An unique memory of my time here in Finland! Tip: bring water proof clothes, if you have some, especially for you upper body.

It will be hard to do justice in this brief review to what we experienced during our three day excursion with Peter. It was all-out professional from start to finish. We experienced both calm waters and also some more turbulent waters. Despite my wife and I both being beginners at sea kayaking, Peter's guidance helped us to fairly easily "weather the storm". We always felt that our highly skilled guide would be able to handle any situation that may have arisen. Apart from the kayaking that was amazing, we also ate like kings. Our guide, and the other guest on our trip (an experienced kayaker and one of the nicest persons we have met in a very long time), literally went the extra mile (rowing into a strong headwind) to buy freshly smoked salmon for one of our dinners. Thanks Aavameri and Peter for having given us a truly memorable experience. It was so much more than we could ever expect!

We had a very nice evening and we will definitely recommend the kayak tour. The two guides were totally sympathetic, warm and open-minded right from the start. The route through the archipelago was very beautiful and we had great experiences of nature. The beautiful weather completed the evening and the pleasant atmosphere. It was an experience we will never forget. Thank you for this great experience!

Thank you for your positive review, great to hear you liked the trip! I agree, the part of the Turku archipelago you experienced is very nice, and it would be great to get to show you the outer more remote archipelago in the outer Archipelago National Park area some day! //Benjamin

We had a four hour kayaking trip on the route you would never find by yourself. We also stopped in an island for a coffee break with a delicious eating. Good introduction for technical tips before paddling by our professional guide. We really enjoyed our team day!! Thank you Benjamin for spending a day with us.

Nice location, experienced instructor. There was enough time reserved for the trip, I felt relaxed and not stressed at all, there was no hurry. Still managed to learn all the basics of sea kayak handling. On the negative side, some of the equipment given to us had minor flaws (like the tail fin on my kayak was not working)

Thank you for your review, great that you had a good time! I am sorry about the skeg not working, the downside with the sandy launching beach is that we often get pebbles and sand into the skeg system of the kayaks, we try to check the skegs between each trip but have missed to clean the skeg box this time. //Benjamin
