Great activity, we had so much fun! We spent 3 hours in the sea looking at dolphins swimming around us. We even saw a whale too. The tour guides were patient and funny. My girlfriend had never kayaked before, but it was very chilled and we both had an amazing experience. 100% recommend.

Confident , professional and approachable staff. We took our kids (8 & 11) and we had never been sea kayaking before. It was a little choppy but we felt really safe and supported. The kids had a great time and were really confident in the staffs abilities, they are still talking about the day. Could not speak higher of these guys.

Thanks for the most amazing experience! We all loved it, especially our 5 year old daughter who you took under your wing as the dolphin spotter! Great banter whilst remaining very professional! Although our kayak capsized twice you helped us remain calm and were able to pull myself and my 135kg Dad back onto our Kayak whist keeping your Kayak safe with my daughter on it! We experienced dolphins close up and could watch the humpback whales breach in the distance! Also appreciate pick up and drop off service. The photos were brilliant! Very good value for money!
