This tour has been recommended by Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society based on its philosophy that guided experiences in nature should inspire people, young and old, to act responsibly for the protection of our planet's vital ecosystems.
After meeting your guides on the pier, they will outfit you with your waterproof gear and life jacket. You will then embark a motorized, inflatable Seahawk craft for the transfer to the kayak base camp, which is tucked away in a picturesque cove. Here, you will receive your safety and kayaking instructions before embarking your two-person kayak. You will then be lead by your guides through the tranquil waterways in a group of four to six kayaks. Along the way, your guides will acquaint you with this area's spectacular marine environment.
Afterward, you will return to the base camp for a hot beverage and snack before being transferred back to the pier.
