It was a very windy day and the kayaking around the Island was a bit tough due to the winds and choppy water. Do not go on a windy day if you are not in good shape. I suggest... More

We spent a fabulous 3 hours today on the Hassle Island tour. Our guide, Cory, was the BEST. Very knowledgeable, great kayaking, although it was a bit rough today.
