This is good for a beginner tour. You do not go very far.

Very organized, good communication from Joe and Ryan, and good introduction to equipment and handling the kayak. Stressed safety over all else. An enjoyable first time experience.

I had a great time on my kayak tour. The staff was professional and friendly, and we're pretty fast getting everyone life vests, setting us up with the kayaks, and getting everyone onto the water. I'd definitely do it again!
