"This was such a great excursion, and our tour guides, Ignacio, Blair and Dexter, were terrific and so much fun. They were very accommodating and provided water, lunch, sunscreen, and even waterproof cases for our phones! They always made sure we were comfortable and having fun. From cool facts about the area to water gun fights, we were always entertained. The water was absolutely beautiful and crystal clear. We also got the opportunity to take a quick dip. It was my first time kayaking, but I was able to get the hang of it pretty easily, so if you've never kayaked, don't be discouraged! ... Such great folks, amazing tour, and I couldn't recommend this enough! Do it!" Elona K., TripAdvisor, October 2021.
