I had a wonderful time at Great Turtle Kayak tours. Our guide was so nice friendly and provided us with a lot of information about the island. I didn't feel rushed either. We were able to take our time and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets and scenery. I absolutely loved it and the pricing was reasonable.
If you are a laid back couple looking to catch a scenic sunrise, go on this tour. You should get a really nice view as long as the clouds aren't in the way. If the clouds block the sunrise, it's cool... There's all sorts of other things to look at in the clear waters and across the straits. Q was a great guide. The other families were friendly and we all got along great. We'll do it again next time we come back.
