We took a kayak tour with a wonderful guide, Rose. Two of us were inexperienced kayakers and she was very accommodating, taught us well, and made us feel comfortable. Rose was very knowledgeable and friendly and knew the best places to show us. It was a great experience for both beginners and experienced kayakers. They even had a locked place to store our belongings. Highly recommend you check them out!

One of the most fun things we have ever done! We booked the 10am private tour and Connor was our guide. Right off the bat he was just so warm, fun and energetic. He tailored the trip to see the things we asked, switched it up effortlessly when we threw in a few curve balls and made us feel so special! He made it feel like he was guiding you to hidden treasure with every stop. 2.5 hours just wasn’t enough, we could of cruised all day. We highly recommend this tour and Connor as a guide!

We had a private electric bike tour with Sergio, a lifetime local who showed us all the best views and local spots of interest. We really enjoyed hearing Sergio tell us about the local history. Going up hills was a breeze with the electric bikes. Thank you for a great tour!
