Viewing the carvings right up close from the kayak was a great experience, made all the better by the commentary from ou knowledgable guide.

My mum and I went on the tour and were lucky enough to be the only ones there. Juliet was our guide and was super lovely and patient, despite some steep/slippery areas being difficult for us to navigate due to low tide.
Overall a great experience and some high quality photos free of charge really made it much better.

Thank you so much for the kind review. We're glad you had fun, found it accessible and have some photos to remember your experience. We pride ourselves on making trips less stressful by taking the worry out of whether to take phones and cameras with you by providing the photos - it's also nice to have a few photos which aren't selfies and have the whole family in!
