Our family had booked the day tour with our 8 & 10 year olds. It was a short bus ride from the meeting point at the central station to the embarkation point. We were fortunate that two other families with kids of similar age were in our group. After a quick drink and orientation with Majel, we paddled into the network of canals. We were introduced to the wildlife and learned the history of the land and water. After a relaxing picnic lunch on an island, the kids went for a quick swim to cool off. We later stopped at a lake for an afternoon snack and longer swim for the group. I would highly recommend a tour with Majel to get out of the city and see the local wetlands.
