Highly recommend their kayak tour. Starts in the am, for 3 hours. The person who took us out was very informative and we got to see many things we may not have noticed had we gone out alone. Worth the extra bucks for the tour.

Hi Laura, We were a group of 6 and didn't do tour. We just went out by ourselves for a couple of hours with a double kayak and 4 SUP boards - we had a great time
