Had a great afternoon with Josh on the kayaks. Felt safe at all times having never being in a sea kayak before. He’s very knowledgeable about the area and a great friendly guy.

Josh was very informative and gave great descriptions of the sights we saw. We managed to see little penguins and a seal swam right next to us! The weather was great, the sea was calm and our group enjoyed every moment. Thank you again Josh!
