    Really easy going staff and enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend! The kayaking isn’t too tiring and the walk is easy, the sandy trail is also quite picturesque. The snorkelling was very fun, however the water can be murky depending on the weather, (if overcast). Even though we had some overcast weather we still saw quite a few fish. All of the guides were great too! 5/5 stars ☺️☺️

    The guides were very informative and made sure that anyone's doubts were cleared. This activity is ideal for anyone with beginner or little experience in the water, as it was explained step by step before commencing. On the morning that we went, there was low tide, and this affected the visibility for snorkelling. So for snorkelling, a high tide will be better. Overall, it was great weather and great views and a very good experience.

    Our tour guide Glen was very friendly! The views were amazing both in the kayak and the water! Although the water wasn’t that clear it cannot be helped! You can’t do all of gods works! Fantastic experience & I would recommend again. The kayak ain’t wasn’t as hard as I thought either. Thankful for your team and your services! Thanks again!
