We go kayaking with Jay as our guide at lest twice a year. This time we requested to explore Crab Creek. It was glorious. Such a serene and beautiful location. We beached the kayaks and jumped into a natural "lazy river run" in the Eddy....More

Jay took our group of 7 for the ultimate kayak experience. Very relaxed, very articulate, he guided our group, including a 10 year old on a beautiful trip around the edge of Coecles Harbor. Our guest said it was the highlight of their visit.
