My colleague and I did the day trip, and it was perfect! Everything was well organized and the tour guide Tony was extremely responsive and attentive. The equipment is in good shape, which contributes to a good paddling experience. The bay views were great and the water was calm. We also got a delicious BBQ lunch on an island. I would definitely do a tour with these guys again.
