Is there an age limit for the tours?

Yes, the age limit is 10 years old and children from  10 - 15 are required to ride on a  tandem kayak with an adult.

Do I need to be an experienced kayaker?

No you can be a first timer – your guide will teach you the simple kayaking techniques.

Our kayaks are “sit-on-top” kayaks. They are a lot more stable and easier to sail compared to traditional kayaks

What do I wear?

Can I bring a camera or a phone on the tour ?

Of course you can! We do recommend using a waterproof camera/phone.

How fit do I need to be?

This is a level easy or moderate kayaking tour so most people should be able to do this tour.

What kind of kayaks do you use?

Is the experience safe?

Yes it’s very safe. Our experienced guides will provide you with safety instructions prior to going on to the sea.

You can since you are wearing a life-jacket. The guides are always close-by if something happens.

If canceled, when will I receive a refund?
