We did the two hour go and tow and had a fantastic time. I'd recommend the go and tow option as it gives you more time to get out towards the open sea. Over the course of the tour we paddled a decent distance and...More

We had a great day on the water with Stan Jr. He was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable. While we didn't see any whales, the coastline was beautiful including a waterfall and sea caves. Definitely recommend. We did the 2hr go and tow.
