    Fun morning

    We all enjoyed the kayaks and the guides were good. However, calling it a Cave Tour isn't really accurate. The group kayaks to the caves and from a long distance, they tell you about the naming of the caves and general trivia. Guests are able to quickly kayak into only the last cave., and the guides help turn around. Quite a lot of waiting.

    Great crew of people and a fun experience!

    Seriously, these people were AWESOME! Took my wife and two kids kayaking and our instructor was super helpful as he recognized my youngest was pretty scared getting out into water over the initial waves. They guided us at an easy pace and kept it casual, informative and entertaining. Thanks for a great experience!
