This trip brought us from the historic pier area and down into the city center area. The pace was good and the event suitable for both inexperienced and well experienced kayakers. Within about 20-30 minutes of paddling we stopped for dockside dinner in the kayaks of fish and chips delivered to us in our kayaks. The route took us to the casino area where we witnessed the fireballs from the water before finishing up near the symphony hall. The kayaks are stable two seater sea kayaks and a bottle of water was provided each participant and loaner dry bags were available,
It was a great experience as I personally like kayaking . However, there was almost no “Tour” in this activity the “tour guide” sometimes talked to a whoever was near him without bothering waiting for the others to come closer so they can hear him, I guess a microphone or headphones would have been a good idea to include everyone in the explanations and discussions while doing such an activity < again, at the end there we're almost no interesting information from what he provided > * The guy was fairly good and helpful :)
I had an amazing time on my tour! Kent was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable about the area, buildings and history of the city, and was also very encouraging during the kayak. He gave useful pointers on how to kayak more efficiently and held a conversation really well! Would definitely recommend this activity to anybody: beginners and experienced kayakers.
The weather on our tour day was great and it was only two of us plus the guide. After a short intro, we embarked (with dry feet) and started the tour. The guide provides some interesting facts about the city, while paddling up the river. The idea of the active tour is awesome, but unfortunately, the river itself is not that scenic.
Great! Highly recommended for beginners and experienced kayakers. Knowledgeable hosts, these guys have been around a while and they run a professional operation. Suitable for solo travellers, families and groups.
