Kayaking and snorkeling with little instruction
, Jul 2021
We did get to snorkel and kayak, but it was just an average experience. We started late, which wasn't a huge deal as it was only 15 minutes, but the tour ended up being under 3 hours (my gps says 2 hours 31 minutes on the water) when it was stated as a 3.5-4 hour tour. One of the guides was super helpful, but the other seemed to be in an altered state and at one point appeared to fall asleep on his kayak and drift off from the group. We spent what seemed like a lot of time waiting for the guides to figure out what they were doing vs actual snorkeling/kayaking. In the end, we got to see a few turtles and snorkeling over the reef was neat, but I feel like our experience was more of a gear rental service than anything else.

That is disappointing Stephanie, I am sorry you did not have a great experience (we are training some new guides and I will certainly let them know about your review) 2.5 hours on the water is the correct timing. Please remember that the 3.5 hour tour time is the TOTAL time it takes to do the tour which includes passing out all the gear, launching, landing and collecting all the gear with all the other kayak companies the total time estimate helps people to know what time the tour begins from check in until we are back on the beach everything is completed.
Good but try to go on a day where winds are lower than 30 -30 mph winds

We did see a sea turtle and lots of fish which was great. Kayaking out to our destination was good until we hit 30 mph winds and my 12 year old son’s kayak capsized. Did not receive a lot of help when that happened and had to ask for help as one of the tour guides paddled by him and said, “You're doing great!” when my son was crying and stuck in the water.

We only go out if wind forecast is under 20 mph...on this day winds were forecast at 10 to 18 mph...keep in mind we do not control the weather!

They were friendly, had the correct equipment, and continually checked on everyone. Best of all took us right to the turtles.
Great Kayak Snorkel Trip!

My wife and I had a blast! Wes and Red were super nice and informative. Wes guided us in our trip and was really helpful, knowledgeable, and great to talk to. He helped us find turtles and tons of awesome fish. The fresh coconuts upon arrival were an added bonus! Would definitely book with them again.

Really awesome experience. I love Kayaking anyway, but being able to be so far out in the ocean and then to see the WHALES!!!??? Incredible. Honestly, I wish it had lasted about two hours longer! Also the whale-sounds microphone thingy Red has is REALLY cool, as well as the underwater cameras!!! An absolutely excellent deal on an incredible experience!!
