These guys would have to be the best there is! Staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable, they enjoyed a bit of bantering and nothing seemed to be a problem. The double sea kayaks & wet gear were all in excellent condition. We went on the half...More

This is a great company. Our guide Luke was patient and witty and the water taxi back with Andy was a thrill ride. Would definitely use again.

Our taxi driver Alexander and kayak guide Taylor were both awesome. The tours were well-organized and equipment was high quality. Their portable toilets were overdue for cleaning and quite gross, but I'll still give 5 stars for the quality of the tour.
