Amazing time, amazing hosts, most beautiful kayak tour of the Shelburne Harbour. We could not have asked for better weather or time on the water. We booked a kayak tour for our new students. Reviews from all - amazing!

We had a wonderful day exploring the scenic Keji seaside adjunct park. We saw seals, porpoises and had a wonderful lunch. I felt very safe in the waves and swells we encountered.
