  • Ben and Magnus were excellent to giving the best history and experience for the tour. Explained a little of the local history and geology of the area.

  • Had a great time on our kayak tour with Tyler and Ané as our guides. They were funny and informative, and did a great job of keeping the atmosphere enjoyable. We were able to see a bunch of sea...

  • Loved this trip so much! I selected the 11:30a trip but checked in with the front desk that morning to see if there were any cancellations and got switched to the 9:30a trip. That time slot was awesome for the sun and animals. Amy and Shawn were amazing tour guides and kept us laughing the whole time. Just me this time and I still loved it and made friends with other guests. Fun facts, secrets of the land, and amazing views. 10/10 would recommend! There were extra waivers there if you weren’t able to print and bring one with you. Lockers were $8 and helped store my dry clothes for after. You will get wet so wear appropriate clothing. The storefront had some last minute items if you needed anything as well. I personally brought a dry bag with me (and secured it to the kayak) and had snacks, water, sunscreen, and my phone.
  • It definitely was an “experience” and makes for a great story. The weather conditions made me question my kayak and snorkeling skills… Despite being somewhat experienced when it comes to kayaking, the waters were incredibly choppy and we were getting pushed around in every direction. At one point we hit a wave and literally were flying in the air. I can not imagine how difficult it would be to navigate as a beginner and wouldn’t recommend this for them. The tour guides were friendly and all but weren’t of much help for others struggling in our group. The water was freezing cold as well so it was nice to have the wetsuit the company provides for the snorkel tour. They also provided us with helmets, life vests, and all the other necessities which made the price seem somewhat affordable. We sadly weren’t able to go into the caves and I wish that they could have clarified this a bit more on their web page. For the majority of the tour we snorkeled around looking for the leopard sharks and seeing only 1 or 2 because they’re very skittish. We were also constantly being drifted closer to shore and needed to keep focusing on relocating. The craziness of it all was very stressful but also hilariously fun. My suggestions would be: only do this tour if you have experience in a kayak or are certain the water will be calm, leave your phone in a locker as I had to hold it closely the entire time for fear of losing it to the waves, and don’t expect to enter the caves unless again you can be certain the weather is going to be perfect. Overall it wasn’t my favorite kayaking trip nor my best but it certainly will be remembered.
  • Me and my daughter enjoyed the cave tour. The waves were too choppy to enter the cave but it was nice going out as a group with awesome staff guiding the way. More purpose, seems easier to row as a gang. I would definately do the tour if you haven't kayaked here before. Chase and miss Elle were our guides and we really enjoyed our time. We have been flying drones over the cove so naturally we decided to see the caves this way.
  • This place was great. Hands-down wonderful guides that took you everywhere you wanna see. The owner was super friendly. Everyone from the guides to the staff to the check-in expert was friendly and outgoing and personable. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
  • Natalie is a knowledgeable tour guide with a great sense of subtle humor! It was not safe to take a closer look at the cave, which was a bit disappointing but otherwise it was a lovely tour. And i definitely appreciated having a guide who knows how to keep the group safe.
