I'd been out kayaking once before in very smooth waters. When I saw the rough water I freaked out a little , but once we... More

My daughter and I had a really nice time on the 'Flat Water Tour' - on the SUP. We were running a few minutes late, and they were so kind and laid back about it. Matt - our guide - was a very knowledgeable guide and was very patient and positive! My daughter was unsure after getting on her own... More

I'm a local and have done tours with them for locals as well as when family comes to town. Their tour guides are top notch! Very safety conscious, very knowledgeable. They keep it fun and also watch out for everyone. Your skill level doesn't matter. My partner and I recently rented from them just for a few hours. They were... More

Went out on the morning tour this morning and had an excellent time. Dolphins were everywhere, the guides we had were very knowledgeable and handled everything very well. I would definitely recommend taking this tour whenever you have the chance.

One of the BEST experiences. The staff was so friendly, easy to work with, and was flexible with our traffic situation. Good instruction on and off the kayak. We got a chance to have a one on one session and it was absolutely amazing! Highly recommended.
