This was our first kayaking experience as a family, and it was very smooth and easy, except for the parking experience. It was the right amount of time, and we were glad to have plenty of time to paddle out and come back before the bats began their voyage. Our guide, Sebastian, gave us good pointers for avoiding larger boats and pointed out the best spot to park and watch the bats leave the bridge. We are eager to return for hourly kayaking sometime soon.

The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Half of our group had never been kayaking including myself. My grown kids and I had a blast. We will definitely do this again!!
