Very encouraging coach helping my friend to Kayak at her first time. The coach team are humorous and make sure everyone is safe. The scenery along the coast line is out of this world ...highly recommended tour even if u can't swim

Friendly staff, amazing experience, would recommend. If you haven't paddle boarded before I recommend a kayak as it is hard work to stand up or be on your knees for about an hour
