Hi Pineapple Tours, I was wondering the price per person, and if you could accommodate a large group? Also, I read from the reviews that you have a half day of kayaking and a half day of snorkeling, is this activity plan still available, or are they booked separately? Thank you.

We are coming in March and have 9 adults (teenagers included) and a 4 year old . We are trying to come up with cool activities we all can do and enjoy -- can the 4 year old go in the kayak with his Mom or Dad?

Hi, Yes definitely a 4 year old can go in a double kayak with an adult! We take young children all the time to the mangroves. We have 3 double kayaks available. Please contact me directly for more information. Thanks!
