Took my family including 3 kids aged 23, 20, 17. Very well run shop with friendly and informative employees.

Nice people. Convenient - they had the kayaks at the beach already. Great experience, even though I got dunked a few times.

Super friendly guides, well organized and great fun. I highly recommend doing this tour! Our very experienced guide John took us on an adventure and showed us seals, otters and pelicans at a close hold and we paddled in and through caves. Thumbs up!

We loved our Dinosaur Caves tour! The experienced guides helped all in our group increase our skill level, even those of us with no previous kayaking. It was pure enjoyment all morning! They knew all the good stories and how to find the best wildlife views. Booking was easy and affordable. Would love to take more tours with them!!

Had a blast! I get chilly easily, was worth it to me to rent the sleeveless wet suit with the water proof light jacket.
