fine for beginners. Goes at a really leisurely pace, and you stay in the mangroves for a bit. Great to take some photos if you have a dry bag around your neck for a phone. For "dry bags" they have some waterproof lunch boxes (so may be different to what you are expecting if you have been on a kayaking tour before). Went at around 2 pm, the tide was up and I think it looked great, very peacful. There are other groups that go in and out so can get busy. We didn't see any dolphins (if that is the ONLY reason you are going don't do this) You might have to duck under branches if you are too close to an edge and are tall. People took their kids on it and they enjoyed it. If you are unsure about doing a 3hr one, do this one first to see. It says 1.5hrs but by the time you do the safety briefing, get your boats in the water, its about 1hr. We had a great day!

Thanks Alex for a wonderful afternoon on the water! It was a lot of fun, we enjoyed learning about the history of the shipwrecks. Highly recommend!

Very fun afternoon, saw dolphins, shipwrecks and paddled through the mangroves.

Knowledgeable guide and an easy, gentle experience. Recommended.
