We are so glad we booked this tour with Oliver. Super nice guy and very informative about the area. Awesome day kayaking and he brought his dog, Winnie. He made sure we were comfortable with dogs before bringing her. He answered all of our questions and made us feel comfortable. He made sure not only that we were comfortable but also safe. For anyone who enjoys the outdoors and loves to kayak, either experienced or a beginner, I'd recommend booking this tour with Oliver.

An absolutely magnificent weekend adventure. There was kayaking, boat rides, camp fires, a beautiful breakfast and nothing but a good time with Oliver. He is a careful planner and ensured we had a good time regardless of the weather or anything else Mother Nature might have held in store for us. We’re already planning our next trip back!
