The tour was amazing. We saw some whales on the Beach Drive and when we were on the Kayaks we saw dolphins and turtles. Vince is a really good and fun tour guide. He shares his knowledge of the Ocean life and we learned a lot from him. We really enjoyed the day and would recommend this tour at any time.

had a great surf lesson today, and the location is really beautiful. The water was also nice even though it's technically 'winter'. Really fun experience. Tip: prepare for surfing with some push-ups over your holidays!
