One comment from a happy family that says it all

“I was very hesitant when my husband suggested three hours ocean kayaking.
Knew 12 and 10 year old boys would be okay
but worried about 7 (just) girl and myself who not too fit.
But had a ball. The three hours flew.
After first ten minutes totally relaxed and realised was not going to fall into ocean!!!
Guide was fab. Definitely go.
Scenery was breathtaking and also the beaches gorgeous.
Will go again next year. Thanks for a great afternoon.” – cevw
