We were both inexperienced sea kayakers and were worried about the level of difficulty. The tour guide made us feel safe and were very informative. We had a great time seeing the sights from the water and highly recommend checking them out!

Went out for a 2 hour paddle with Stan Jr. Very knowledgeable guide and quite the sense of humour. Through the little rapid, into the tunnel and bays with all the whales feeding on capelin. A must experience while in St. John's.

We did the two hour go and tow and had a fantastic time. I'd recommend the go and tow option as it gives you more time to get out towards the open sea. Over the course of the tour we paddled a decent distance and...More
