The guides were knowledgable, experienced and good leaders. They had a sound system so everyone could hear. The tide was low and the water smooth and wonderful. Lots of creatures to see. The kayaks were easy to maneuver and stable.

Nicholas was very knowledgeable about the fauna and flora of the region. He made us feel safe and we had a beautiful kayak outing. We saw many cute harbor seals, along with snowy egrets, cormorants, seagulls, minnows, ducks and a great blue heron. The 12 foot kayaks were nice
