Relaxing Sunset Kayak Trip
Feb 2020 • Couples
We did a 2.5 hour guided kayak tour, each in our own kayak, for sunset and birdwatching. It was a lovely relaxing experience with loads of birds, a howler monkey and lovely scenery. $25 per person and guide William knew the area and wildlife really well. Like lots of places, a bit of Spanish helps (and we only have a tiny bit!). Go around 3pm to see lots of birds and sunset. Take hat, water, sunscreen and have a change of clothes as you will probably get wet.

Excellent value for money, best way to see Las Isletas, wear sunscreen!
Mar 2018 • Couples
We went out for a 2-hour tour of the islands with guide Miguel from Inuit Kayaks. Miguel's English was limited but he nevertheless showed us and explained to us some very cool and interesting stuff - roosting black crowned night herons, nesting Montezuma Oropendola (very cool), fruit bats on a tree (very well camouflaged) and, of course, Pancho the monkey on monkey island (a little touristy but fun). The kayak tour was leisurely and well-paced and excellent value for money because we were out for close to three hours instead of two. My only advice is to make sure you put sunscreen on thoroughly before you head out! I missed my ankles and, because these are sit on top kayaks, I really rued that omission the next day! So, be prepared for full sun exposure and little opportunity to reapply sunscreen during the paddle. Hat, water, thorough application of sunscreen and enjoy!

Wonderful kayak tour with Lorenzo
Jan 2018 • Family
Don't let the dirty water at the edge of the lake scare you off. Once you are in the isletas, the tour becomes great, especially if you are lucky enough to have Lorenzo as your tour guide. He was born and raised in the islands and still lives there. He knows the flora and fauna inside out and will point out animals throughout the trip. Lorenzo follows your speed and and is extremely attentive to each person in the group, based on their interest, physical abilities. His English is good and he is great to practice Spanish with because he will speak slowly.

awesome kayak tour
Dec 2016 • Friends
We originally just wanted to rent kayaks and explore Las Isletas ourselves, but the owner did a great job explaining our different options, and we decided to go with the $25USD 2.5hour kayak tour. You can pay by cash and if you only have card, if their machine doesn't work the owner will drive you back to the bank in town, which is awesome because you save on a taxi ride. I'm so glad we decided to get the tour, because the waves could be crazy at times and you could easily get lost around the islets. The owner's son, Brian, did a great job taking us through the islets, showing us bats, monkeys, birds, flora/fauna etc. on the way and we got a rest on the San Pablo Fort island. On the way back, Brian gave us the option to take the easy but longer way back, or go out into the treacherous open waters but shorter way back. We obviously took the more fun way back, and you get a 2in1 deal because you get to kayak and "surf" the waves back to shore. Lots of people capsized but it was totally worth it.

tl;dr: if you just wanna sit back relax sip martinis, i'd go with those boat tours. if you're looking for a pecs workout, wanna get wet, get up close to monkeys and nature, then lather on the sunscreen and do Inuit Kayak.

Kayak tour
Dec 2015
Rented kayaks here as part of a tour we booked in town. Recommend coming here directly and skipping the middle man tour company. Kayaks were good and our guide was great. Recommend going early as the wind picks up throughout the day and you will avoid the heat.

Reasonable kayak rentals
Nov 2014 • Friends
A friend and I rented kayaks here for a morning to go check out Las Isletas. The kayaks were in good shape, friendly staff, reasonably priced and they even sent a free guide out with us!

Our guide Jose was amazing!
Aug 2014 • Couples
I knew I had one full day in Granada and my number one priority was taking a guided kayak tour of the Isletas. I was not disappointed. My boyfriend and I botched our planning and ended up getting to Inuit Kayaks at 12 noon -the hottest part of the day- and took a four hour guided trip -the longest ride available. The first thirty minutes I thought maybe we had made a mistake. Even though you're paddling into a lake there are waves. You will get very wet (which was a blessing in the heat) but that stretch towards the islands (both getting out and coming back) is by far the hardest part.
Jose, our guide was stellar. His English was amazing and he was friendly and helpful. We loved all the stops along the route: the pirate fort, the island restaurant, monkey island, and weaving through all the tiny islands with their amazing birds and beautiful houses. I wish we had done this in the morning or evening both to overcome the heat and to see more animals but I still had an amazing time.

Check the age of your guide
Jul 2014 • Solo
I guess this tour could be really incredible if you are good at kayaking. I paid 25 $ for a 2 1/2 hr tour at 6 am. I was picked up earlier, William- an older man who met me at inuit Kayaks was very friendly. although with limited English. Then the boy, Brian, who said that he was 15, although as I teach 15 year olds, I think he was 13 or 14 most, said that he would be my guide. He also had very limited English.
When we got to the lake, he basically said, "Sit," pointed to the right and said, "go there."
When we started the trip, it was very windy and the waves were quite. I did not get any instructions on how to handle a kayak in such waves although I informed William that I am not a good swimmer and do not have much experience with kayaking.
So, while I was struggling with the waves, my guide Brian was around 50 meters away from me struggling with the waves, then he flipped over.
The day before, while I was doing a boat tour, I saw kayaking tours with groups of people: they had a professionally dressed guide who was close to them, talking to them. I asked my guide if this was how the tours were arranged and he confirmed that I would get a professional guide with whom I would not need to worry. That is why I originally signed up for this tour.

Then, when
I got off the kayak and asked the boy to bring someone adult, he could not understand what I wanted as his English is really limited and I do not know Spanish.

So, I guess if the company sends such a young guide on such trips, they should at least train him a bit on how to deal with this job.

But again, I am sure if you know how to handle a kayak on a rough lake, you will not have a problem doing it!

PS: I did not get my money back as they said that I will get it later today from the office, so I hope it will be alright.

great kayaking adventure!!
Jun 2014 • Couples
The kayak trip was fantastic! We traveled with the best guide, Brian. He is an older fellow of 15 ! Born and raised on the lake/islands. His grandfather, also born and raised on the islands, were very knowledgeable and so great. Although, I did not eat at the restaurant, I recommend inuit kayak, for the lake tour. Can't wait to come back!!
