My boyfriend and I had so much fun with our guide Ben! He was a blast and so friendly and helped me figure out how to kayak. It was definitely a fun first experience for us going around Discovery island and seeing all the animals.

Guided by Sophie, we were given an amazing tour of the harbour and out to see some seals. She was really knowledgeable and told us a lot about the local area and sea life. A great family experience.
