Aug 2019

As a first-timer, I was a little nervous about kayaking. Let me say that the staff that guided our Waites Island tour last Friday morning were superb! They were very patient, informative and friendly. I was very comfortable in just a few minutes. What a wonderful experience... I think I may be a lifetime kayaker now! — Google Reviewer,Trude Blinson
