Had a really great tour on the water. But the weather was perfect and the sun was actually there the whole time. It gets a little cold on your hands and feet, but it's definitely worth it. My guide was also super nice and we had some great conversations where you hardly noticed the cold. Definitely to recommend :)

Can I give my sea kayaking adventure 10 stars out of 5? It was an amazing experience for all the senses. Breathtaking views you can’t get on land with total peace and quiet. The fascinating commentary backed up a really fun couple of hours. The equipment and our guide gave us the confidence to just enjoy the time. Totally recommended.
