The only thing to complain about was the cloud cover.
Sithila_T, June 2023
I had this rescheduled by the operator because of the a strong current building in the waterways the evening before, but the tour operator was very quick to respond when I asked if it was worth moving it to the day after.
Guide was quite informative and was patient despite the differences in skill level across the group. Maybe, my only suggestion would be that I would have been happy to pay more to sit down for a snack or something at Macintosh Island, but that's not to say anything was wrong with it as it is.
Nothing bad to say about this trip. The only complaint was that unfortunately, it clouded over, but the tour operator can hardly be blamed for that! If you get a chance and you know it will be a clear day in the evening, this one is worth doing to wrap up your day.
Fantastic guide and an equally cherishing experience

A great overall experience right from booking till the end. Viator helpdesk was very approachable and helpful. The kayaking is not too challenging and good for someone looking for a relaxing experience. The guide was helpful and made sure everyone was taken care of. Great location, peaceful waters, parking available. Overall a must try

Very enjoyable kayak trip. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff made for a great excursion around Macintosh island. Beautiful sunset to finish it off too.

Relaxing paddle but I thought some commentary about the region would have made in better. Quite enjoyable trip.

The view was just amazing!! There were only 3 of us including our guide, but he made us feel at home and showed us celebrities' houses and luxurious hotels from the water. The food and champagne was really good as well. Highly recommended!!
