Unfortunately I am writing this review several months after our trip, so I do t remember a lot of specific details, BUT I do remember that my family really enjoyed this kayak excursion. My 3 kids are older teenagers and the kayaking was easily managed. There was another family in our group and their younger children also managed very well. The guide kept us together without difficulty and we all always felt safe and in control. The guide took us to areas where we could easily see seals and pointed out and explained a variety of things relevant to the wildlife and plants. We saw lots of seal swimming nearby and on the land as we kayaked past. It’s beautiful and I highly recommend this over any kind of power boat. Really beautiful seeing the life and area from water level!
I have used OIE many times and have always enjoyed the experience. I am not sure any two were alike except for the safety briefings. The mission of course is to see the whales, I have always seen whales some times more than others but nonetheless whales. I find the captains and the first mates work well together and the information given is legitimate . Great to see these young people being knowledgeable about all our sea life as well as the Islands. Thanks to the crews for great trips and look forward to more in 2019. Cheers, Rosie
