Had an incredible day on the water yesterday thanks to the efforts of the friendly folks at the Paddle Sports Center. My paddleboard rental was easy, accessible and fun. The guys at the shop provided a detailed rundown of paddleboarding techniques, and hooked me up with all the gear I'd need to enjoy my time on the water. Being right in the harbor, we had so many options to explore the SB coastline. Our day at Ledbetter was perfect. Thanks, Paddle Sports!

A well organized tour. Our guide (Chuck) was great and very knowledgeable. We got to see a variety of caves and he also had good advice for a quick hike. The day was cold and misty but the views were amazing. It seems like each trip would be different depending on water levels and weather so I wouldn't hesitate about booking another adventure.

We booked an epic adventure for a family of 4. JD was our guide- he was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and willing to take us wherever the kids wanted. We hiked, kayaked and snorkeled. The weather was not perfect- but the we had a perfect visit.

Our adventure included packed lunches and water bottles- we just had to show up. We recommend layers for the ferry ride, and a towel.
