Great kayaking experience

Awesome kayaking experience. As a novice I was well looked after and the guide Hamish was kind and considerate, allowing for appropriate rest times. After paddling for a while, we saw hundreds of fur seals in their colony, then went further around the coast and were lucky to see a blue penguin also. We were out kayaking for the allotted time and during this the guide shared his local knowledge. It was a fun and challenging experience. Highly recommended and glad I didn't chicken out about doing it.
