Response from DiscoverySea, Owner at Discovery Sea Kayaks

Thank you for the feedback. Getting customer feedback is one of our main resources to enhance our training for staff members. As noted when working with a mixed group each tour can be dynamically different from miles traveled and islands we may visit. I will follow up with your guide on communication difficulties. I will also inquire on the paddling request for an evening paddle after he was done preparing dinner and the necessary cleaning afterward. As a kayaking and camping experience, we try to balance the amount of time on land and water to fit the group. I am happy you felt the service was safe and professional, but we strive to go the extra mile so each guest on our tours has the best experience.
