We had a great time with John, he knew the area where we were quite well and he did a great job keeping the group together. Swimming with the turtles is an experience you will never forget!

A nice kayak that is appropriate for any level of kayaker. Our guide John was very helpful and made everyone feel at ease. He showed us a great place to snorkel and see the turtles and fish. The price was affordable. Great trip!
