We had so much fun in an amazing part of the world. The guides were friendly and informative. It was a great work out but still easy to keep up. We slept well that night!

Wow, 8 day trip. would be flying in from the US and looking to do a similar week trip (unguided?) with my son. We are strong paddlers and campers. However, I am a bit daunted about arriving from overseas and doing this trip cold. can you make some recommendations? Does the Salty Dog have everything that we need? Guide required? wind a big issue? any other recommendations? thanks Hilary SF Bay
