Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. Sorry you didn't get quite the experience you wished Laure. but you wouldn't have been able to take the kayak for several hours on a Bookme deal in any case! And yes, it certainly does get busy during the Summer months at Goat Island. Sounds like you might need to do sea kayaking in the Abel Tasman? All the very best and thanks for your kind comments about our service.
