Chris our guide was amazing! Had lots of knowledge to share and he was a lot of fun! The waters in the cave were beautiful! Chris had snacks for us and ensured everyone was having fun. I would request him if that is allowed.
Awesome New Experience!

How it started, teen: “I hate kayaking and I’m never doing it again!” How it ended, teen: “When are we going again?” Seth and Celeste were absolutely amazing; they were so helpful and patient with us on our first kayaking adventure. I really enjoyed their humor and expertise during our new (post Covid) experience. Thanks! Kier&Noah

From the moment I clicked submit on my online tickets to drop-off, it was a seamless, amazing experience! Great communication from the team to ensure we got picked up on time. Our tour guide Shey was just awesome. So knowledgeable and her positive energy was contagious. The actual kayak tour was over the top. My daughter and I will cherish this experience forever. Thank you!
