I've been snorkeling and kayaking before, but I've never seen soo many fish. First we saw sea lions and judged the safety of the waves, then we beached near the Arch and went snorkeling. Hugo was a great guide, I am not a pro and have only been in the ocean a few times, but my wife and I felt very safe the whole time. Hugo also did all the work, unloading and loading the kayaks and keeping a drybag in his kayak. I'd recommend this trip to anyone, regardless of skill level.
