Ten of us took this trip with family visiting from California. Our group was comprised of inexperienced kayakers of all ages but that didn't matter at all. Our guides, Tom and Matt, were easy-going, fun and helpful. Their knowledge of and passion for the Coastal Bays ecosystem was impressive. We never once got the feeling they'd done this a million times - instead their enthusiasm made it seem like they were having just as much fun as we were. If you want a fun, unique activity that appeals to everyone, you'll love this experience.
