Red is awesome & Sea Turtles are cute!

Red was so nice and knowledgeable. He kept us safe and we had fun, that's all that matters:) P.S. Wear your sunscreen and please be patient! The turtles are NOT there for you so if you don't get a chance to see them, don't be...More

Great Kayak/Snorkel

We had a great time on the kayak/snorkel tour. Between the whales and turtles, it couldn't have been better! It was a highlight of our vacation.

Small personal operation with a friendly owner.

It was too windy our first attempt to kayak, but Roger worked with us to get us in on another day before we had to leave the island. We got to see some turtles and sealife as well as a spectacular view of the mountains....More
