Awesome adventure. It was fun.
Easy paddle and just enough distance/time to enjoy biobay.
The guides were very knowledgeable in answering our questions.
Do not pass this unique experience.

Family of four loved this adventure. Kids Age 7 and 9.....no problems paddling or controlling kyacks. It is a long paddling adventure so be prepared as many others have written about bio bay experiences.

After reading so many reviews about the bio bay kyacking then doing it myself I believe the following....
1). People who have never done anything physical in their life try to get on a kyack for what is clearly advertised as a 2 hour tour then complain because nobody told them that they would actually need to paddle. Net result - if you want to be fat and lazy choose the electric boat not a kyack.

2). People complain they only got 5 minutes in the bay but they did say that the bulk of the kyacking through the mangroves gives the same experience of biobay and in some cases better since part do mangrove channel is darker than the bay. Island adventures guides pointed this out early in the trip out to the lagoon which was great....kids started playing immediately.

3). People complain about the kyacking in the mangroves.....this has nothing to do with the guide or tour company at all. Yes you need to paddle through a mangrove channel and yes it is dark. Island adventures did a great job of explaining the situation and tel,ling everyone what to do, how to follow each other, how to avoid hitting the trees what to do if you do hit a tree etc. ....absolutely perfect. Our group was pretty good at the whole kyack thing but there were a few that obviously did not listen to the guides.....I am sure they are the types of people that complain about guides not caring.

4). Suggest you do the early trip. It lets you see the mangroves that you kyack through on the way out to the lagoon then on the return trip it is totally dark at least you know what is around you.

5). Unfortunately the bulk of the experience has to do with the group of people you are with due to the kyacking itself. If you have a group of people who can barely walk on their own two feet then you probably will not get a good experience since they won't be able to control the kyack and your guides will need to hold the whole group up waiting for the slow people.

Overall island adventures did great for my family....friendly, good English, good information about the lagoon the reason the history etc, new life jackets, and in general we had a great time.

I'm not a water fan but enjoyed seeing this. The tour guides were helpful and patient. If you are going to take this tour it would be helpful if at least one person in the boat has some kayaking experience to sit in the back. It will be very dark, the canal is small, fish occasionally jump into the boat, it may rain, you will run into trees and there are many kayaks (15-20) in the group, some with people who are clueless and panicking, or think they are in the Olympics. I enjoyed the kayak adventure and the tour guides. The only thing that kept this from being rated higher was the others in our group. A smaller group divided among tour guides would have been more my style.

After a disasterous night kayak through a mangrove canal, we were only given 5 minutes to enjoy the bio bay. The tour guides were condescending and could care less that people were upset about getting lost. Overall it was a terrible experience.
