We had a fine day on the water with JT and Dan. They led a group of kayak novices out to see eagles, seals and other wildlife, and made us all comfortable and safe on the water.

Peter and Sasha were fantastic kayak guides to Eagle and Clover Passage islands. They’re uninhabited and belong to local Indian tribes. We saw a 900 pound (approximately) Eagle next. September is a great time to take this trip. Heartily recommend!

Once we arrived we were quickly outfitted and instructed on the procedures and safety requirements. The guides made it very entertaining and available for all skillsets. The views were breath taking, and the trees offered a good amount of cover from the torrential rain

I don't think this operation has rooms, tubs, or showers. It is strictly kayaking, biking, and zipllining tours. I'm not sure where you got the idea it was a "hotel" type of operation?
