Hired kayaks

Was absolutely an amazing experience!!! My husband and I hired a half day kayak which was 4 hours and gosh this was definitely a good amount of time as we did the river by the waterfalls and also paddled to one of the islands from beach. The guys were amazing when they welcomed us and made us feel comfortable especially with some humour. They made sure we were all sorted and gave us tips and places to kayak to. Thanks team you guys are great and we will definitely be back!!

Awesome.

It was really cool full day trip, we've got all the gears what needed, no swimsuits there. Mangroves are awesome, but must go til the end! Two single kayak flr 8 hours, definitely worth for two person 60 bucks. Enjoy, i would recommend.
