We went on an afternoon kayak trip with Robbie out of Deer Harbor. He was an excellent guide who considered everyone's abilities in planning our afternoon, and checkied in as we went to make sure we were comfortable. He was friendly, knowledgeable and provided for a very pleasant afternoon! I would definitely do this again!

We took my 84 year old mother who had ever been in a kayak. Had a wonderful time and saw heron, river otter, seals, starfish and many other birds. Michelle was fun and knowledgeable, checking in with us throughout the trip, watching for currents and waves, and sharing info. It was a great day. Thanks Michelle!
