Fantastic tour guides, so glad we chose them over the others. They didn’t hustle us for tips like the other groups there. Can’t wait until next year to use them again!

We rented 2 paddle boards for the day. It was so easy to make an appointment. We called, scheduled a time and Bob met us, showed us around the boards and off we went. Man, we had so much fun!
