Most of our kayaking tours are suitable for beginner kayakers. You do not need to be an athlete but some basic physical fitness is required for the trip to be enjoyable and fun. Our pace depends on the group, but we generally take our time. You should be happy to spend up to few hours paddling to keep up with the group.
Your safety is our priority. Strong winds and thunderstorm can cause us to cancel kayaking trips from time to time. In that case you can re-schedule your tour or we will give you a full refund. Rain is no reason to cancel and all trips will proceed as normal; just be prepared with rain jacket.
Due to safety we don’t offer kayak rental.
Capsizes are fairly rare as our double kayaks are very stable. However, if you do capsize, your guide will be close by to help you back into your kayak quickly.
