Really cool dude took us out on the water, and we had a little sort of adventure out and around the coast. Very chill, especially when we fell in the water ;) was very much fun, however. 10/10 would kayak again.

Super set up, energetic staff. My wife and I rented a double kayak for two hours. They ensured we were outfitted correctly, aware of the waters we were going to be paddling in. Great way to spend a few hours on the water.
