Awesome adventure

We really enjoyed our paddle out to Haruru falls. The kids had a neat time. The guides were very friendly and funny & great with the kids. Was an awesome experience. Definitely worth doing. The waters are lovely & calm as you are not near any waves.

Best Experience

As a person with no prior Kayak knowledge, this is the best thing to do in kayak. The team is very professional and friendly. I really loved the guided tour through the waterfall and mangrove. Both me and my 11 years old son enjoyed the awesome team event in the middle of the water.
