I don't know what made the experience; the dolphins playing or our amazing tour guide, Julian! The waters were calm enough for our children to paddle through. The islands where an exciting place to explore!

The morning weather was a little suspect but we lucked out and got Chris all to ourselves with a Shark Tooth Island trip. My 12 year old and I shared a tandem and it was a nice, easy paddle… even when one of us decided to no longer paddle. Chris was a great guide- very personable and funny. My kid was pumped to find several shark teeth. It was a great start to our day- thank you, Chris!!

Dan our guide is a biology major and was very knowledgeable about all of nature artifacts we found. He was a great Kayak guide and coach as well. We have 4 teenage boys and we all loved this adventure trip and found great amounts of shark teeth.

Wonderful kayaking tour!! Our tour guide who's name i unfortunately don't remember but he was going to college for environmental science I believe; was very knowledgeable of the area and water conditions. He showed us how to properly paddle and helped us get into the water. When we first arrived the wind was quite strong and we were asked if we still wanted to go out because of the conditions. So glad we all decided to give it a chance because while it was hard to get out to Zeke's Island it was a lot of fun. Our guide tried to stay in the middle of the group because we all padded at variating speeds due to some with experience and others newbies. So when one of us flipped their kayak he was fast to get out to us and correct the situation. After that we explored the island a little bit, went to the next little beach area. We did some exploring, rested on the beach while collecting some shells. On the way back he connected the one that flipped to his kayak to make sure she was good. Of course the way back was a hella easy cause the wind died down and we weren't fighting the current so we got back quite fast. In the end it was a great tour and would definitely recommend checking it out if you want a cool adventure. Granted my friend who flipped while she said it was fun, she definitely doesn't want to go back in the water soon.

This was my favorite thing we did on vacation! Our guide, Aaron, was amazing - knowledgeable, patient, and so chill, which helped with the kids. We had a great afternoon!
