Randy is a great tour guide of the Rudee Inlet. I would describe myself as a confident beginner prior to his tour, and he gave me tips for refining my stroke, which definitely helped. I can't wait to go again.

I think that it varies based upon the time of the year and the time of the trip, so you would need to text Randy to find out. His cell number is 757-343-3560. Have Fun, it is worth the trip.
