Fun way to see and get a history of the regional animals, and nature of the area. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great at explaining the techniques necessary for the novice sea kayaker

Yes you have to make reservations, this can be done online. They only have a certain amount of spots each day. You arrive at 7:45 and it goes until around 11:15-11:30.
